Social Media

Read the scenario provided below and incorporate the six pillars of character as you address a possible solution.

Scenario

Mr. Y is a new teacher in his first 90 days of employment in his district. He has made friends with many staff members and invited them to visit his social network page. On his website, Mr. Y has listed quite a bit of personal information. One of his colleagues visited the site and became very concerned because the site included a statement that Mr. Y was attracted to young girls, stating “the younger the better.”

The colleague notified the principal of this information.
