a little recognition as to some of the burden such a change puts on other people would be appreciated


You agree that the recognition of the teacher's gender transformation was so burdensome that the children should have been shielded from it at the expense of the teacher? And if a teacher gets in an accident that lops off their arm, the children shouldn't be harmed by seeing their teacher without an arm?

I don't agree. These are not things so terrifying/confusing that children need to be prevented from knowing about them. Children need to learn acceptance of others. Heck, one of those students might even decide to change genders someday, and the teacher's openness could help them through the process.

Also, this is only partially a privacy issue. It's also one of judgement and ridicule. The opinion piece was being very judgemental, and attempting to invalidate the lifestyle chosen by the teacher. Essentially, the journalist wanted the teacher fired and relocated. That kind of public pressure on an individual isn't appropriate.
