It's hard to tell if Kristen Grandinetti's social media life is getting in the way of her teaching job, or if her teaching job is stunting her social media life.
Ms. Grandinetti, who is also a Niagara Falls council member, frequently posts during what appears to be her work hours at Harry Abate School.
For months if not years Ms. Grandinetti posts on Facebook during school hours have helped to break the tedium of having to manage and try to teach a classroom of unruly children who have little interest in the topics Grandinetti can't resist.
Here's a small sampling of her more recent musings:
Monday May 4, 9:00am
She shared 30 Niagara Beautification photos from the weekend trash pickup
Monday May 4, 9:00am
She reposted the Ironworkers 9 apprenticeship program information
Friday May 1, 12:08pm
She posted a CNN news story titled, "Clinton campaign blasts GOP abortion bill"
Friday May 1,10:43am
She posted information on the new "Hillary Clinton 2016 Coin" which is a 24-carat coin minted to raise campaign funds for the former First Lady
Thursday April 30, 1:35 pm
She shared a video of Mama Cass, Mary Travers and Joni Mitchell performing the song, "I Shall Be Released"
Thursday April 30, 1:14pm
She wrote, "Stop the war on women and the LGBT COMMUNITY" along with a video titled, "8 Feminist Reasons We Know 2015 Is Just 1972 All Over Again"
Thursday April 30, 9:58am
She posted her now infamous rant on the Niagara Falls school district's "near criminal" sex-ed program
All in all it was a busy couple of social media days for the full-time public school teacher and part time elected city official.
And, looking at this small snapshot of Kristen's Facebook handiwork, it is indeed difficult to tell if she's simply a teacher writing Facebook comments, or a social media aficionado whose addiction is being rudely interrupted by a classroom of children.
While it may seem that this devotion to Facebook postings is lopsidedly done during school time, readers will be happy to note that Ms. Grandinetti, while attending council meetings, is often seen busily typing into her phone either posting on Facebook or texting someone on thoughts far more important than the mundane issues that compel the rest of the council's attention.
