A Texas teacher who lost her job after asking President Trump on Twitter to remove the illegal students from Mexico from her school has won an appeal to get her job back.
Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath ruled Monday that the series of offensive tweets sent in May by Georgia Clark an English teacher at Carter-Riverside High School in Fort Worth were protected by the First Amendment, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Clark, whose Twitter account has since been deleted, is now entitled to return to the classroom with back pay and employment benefits or district officials can fork over one years salary.
The teacher was fired in June after seeking assistance from Trump in a barrage of tweets that she said she thought were private messages to the commander-in-chief, Clark later told a district investigator.

Thanks for the editorial comment in the middle of this "news" story.
A real thanksgiving
The 1st Amendment: It’s not just for illegal aliens demanding to make their own state in US territory.
She sounds rather like the people who thought President Obama was going to pay their mortgages and buy them gas.
Yep, that was what I zeroed in on, as well.
“...the series of offensive tweets...”
But, no different than NBC Nightly News.
Good for her that she got her job back, and with all back pay included. But that school still does not want her back.
She would realistically be better off looking to transfer to another school.
The School officials at her past job won’t forgive her for outsmarting (and exposing) their bias, or for overturning their decision. They would very likely get even in petty little ways, or push her to accept early retirement.

You’re right. The bureaucrats will find a way to screw her.
“that the series of offensive tweets”
Typical NY leftist “journalism”. Insert personal leftist opinion instead of sticking to the facts.
She should take advice from an old Steve Miller song:
“Take The Money & Run!”....or retire from full time work.
And I don't care if they're from Australia,Zimbabwe or anywhere in between.
Freedom of speech applies to patriotic Americans too? I’m surprised!
Somehow not surprised.
That's the first thing that jumped out at me. When I worked in the Fourth Estate, that kind of crap was cause for being fired.
Political speech is the exact speech the First Amendment was intended to protect.
But the Democrat perverts decided it only protected pornography.
We certainly can’t have a teacher advocating the application of the rule of law.
But cheering on Antifa beatdowns is O.K.
