Rubino successfully won back her teaching position after being terminated for posting the following on Facebook after a Harlem student drowned on a trip to Long Island:
"After today, I am thinking the beach sounds like a wonderful idea for my 5th graders! I HATE THEIR GUTS!" and...if a student was drowning, "Yes, I would [sic] not throw a life jacket in for a million!!"
The City will fight her court ordered reinstatement and we are fully behind their appeal. Rubino says she is sorry and has paid for her mistake. Here is how the Old and New Testaments apply...you suffer the consequences for this egregious conduct (Old Testament God)...you are fired and will never teach again! (New Testament God)...you are forgiven,. These are not mutually exclusive. Fired and forgiven. End of story, not reinstated! If the teacher's union is behind her reinstatement, shame on them. Forgive her but NEVER let her hold a teaching position again.
