Having a side business or 'moonlighting' is one thing, but
using school records or the school phone/e-mail directory to
promote a side business is quite another!! Where I teach
(California) pupil and personnel records (including phone and
e-mail directories for staff) are considered confidential and
priveleged information, and any unauthorized use thereof by a
school district employee such as myself would be grounds for
immediate dismissal. Perhaps things are different in the state
of Mississippi, but if I were one of your teaching colleagues
or (God forbid!) a parent, I would be seriously annoyed if I
got an e-mail solicitation from you. I strongly suggest you
consult with your principal or personnel director before
engaging in such crazy stuff.
