PA Note: Primarily directed towards ALTs, due to their close contact and interaction with students in a teacher capacity, but some parts are applicable to CIRs or other public servant positions. Please read carefully to be sure that your online behavior is just as professional and appropriate as your behavior at work, if not more so.
