DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (CBS) - The Central Bucks School District is preparing for the return of a high school teacher whose profanity-laced blogs about her students six months ago made national headlines (see previous stories).
The school district is speaking out for the first time about Natalie Munroe, who is expected to be in the classroom at CB East High School on August 29th, when students return from summer vacation.
But just how many students will be in her class is in question.

The district says she has a legal right to employment, but so far 60 students have asked to be kept out of her classes. Those requests have been granted.
Principal Abraham Lucabaugh says the comments posted online by Munroe caused untold damage to the school and its students.
"Her comments were unprofessional, disrespectful, and disturbing, particularly coming from the heart of an educator," Lucabaugh says. "Moreover and most importantly, they were crass and cruel."
Without identifying any of the students, she described them as "whiny," "disengaged," and "frightfully dim." Lucabaugh says he will closely monitor her English and Debate classes.
