GASTONIA, N.C. — A Gaston County high school teacher is under suspension after officials sayshe posted one of her student’s work on a social media site.

The Gaston Gazette reports that North Gaston High School English teacher Shanna Sigmon-Moore posted three photos of her students’ writing on Facebook, highlighting their grammar gaffes and misspellings.

After a friend made a comment about a student’s spelling mistake, Sigmon-Moore commented, “See what I go through every day.”

Sigmon-Moore’s posts weren’t shared publicly on the social media site, but a customized group of her Facebook friends could see the photos.

Gaston County Schools spokeswoman Bonnie Reidy said the teacher has been suspended with pay pending a complete investigation.

No one answered a phone listed under Sigmon-Moore’s name Thursday.
