Students Stand Up And Support Gay Former Catholic School Teacher Who Was Fired For 'Nontraditional' Pregnancy

students stand up and support former catholic school teacher who was fired for nontraditional pregnancy

Ugh!

We hate that this happened to this teacher, but we're SO glad to see all of the support she's received since!

Barb Webb was recently fired after working at an all girls Catholic school for the past nine years. She spent countless hours at Marian High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, but the former teacher - who is gay - believes she was let go because she is pregnant.

The timeline of the previous months would certainly prove that reasoning, since she told her bosses that she was pregnant in the middle of July, about a month after she first learned she was pregnant, and was subsequently fired in August.

Here's what she wrote on Facebook at the time:

You Know Nothing Unless You Take This Awesome Game Of Thrones Class!

Filed under: BookzSchoolGame Of ThronesGIFs

game of thrones course university of virginia

If only this class were available to the Jon Snow, then Ygritte wouldn't rub his cluelessness in his face so much! HA!

But then, maybe the show wouldn't have earned as many Emmy nods as it did!

So now, not only can you watch Game of Thrones on HBO, but now you can actually STUDY it thanks to the class being offered at the University of Virginia!

(Looks like someone's taking advice from the professor who created the Miley Cyrus sociology course!)

But, wait, GoT is based on a book series, what's the big deal that there's a college course on it?

Well, Lisa Woolfork, the professor of the summer class at UVA, explains that it's much MORE than just a silly old English class.

In fact, she's teaching the books along with the HBO episodes and proving that the series doesn't "ruin" the books, but they enhance the reading experience!

She said:

'One of the goals behind this class was to teach students how the skills that we use to study literature are very useful skills for reading literature and TV in conjunction. Game of Thrones is popular, it’s interesting, but it’s also very serious. There are a lot of things in the series that are very weighty, and very meaningful, and can be illuminated through the skills of literary analysis'

It’s so literary – how in-depth it is, how robust it is, how much there is to discuss about it. But we’re also very concerned about the pop culture aspects, how we as viewers receive Game of Thrones. I think it’s important to apply the same principles we do with literature to television and film…'

WHOA! How exciting does THAT sound!

We wonder what the next pop culture-induced college class will be?

The Avengers differences in comic books and movies? Taylor Swift's influence on the music industry?

So many options!

The boy who walked into an Oregon school and began shooting yesterday was only 15 years old, according to police.

Authorities have identified Jared Michael Padgett as the lone suspect. The teenage boy shot and killed fellow student Emilio Hoffman, 14, in the locker room of Reynolds High in the town of Troutdale, just 15 miles outside of Portland.

Padgett then exchanged gunfire with police before turning his weapon on himself.

And while the motive for his heinous crime remains unclear, officials are now saying Padgett was heavily armed. He arrived at his school with a rifle, a handgun, nine magazines capable of holding several hundred rounds of ammunition, a vest to carry all of his extra ammo, and a multi-sport camouflage helmet.

Experts say many more lives could have been lost but

It’s not easy getting good advice, especially when it comes to romantic relationships.

But for substitute teacher Cassandre Fiering, asking her 4th grade class about her boyfriends proved to be a bit of a bad idea!

It actually cost her her job!

The 45-year old educator and part-time actress was teaching at P.S. 189 in the Bronx when she asked students to decide between the two men she was dating! Investigators say she even acted out scenarios she’s had with her suitors and then had the kids determine which man would make for a better mate!

Oh boy…
