Why is Monica Pignotti No Longer Teaching at FSU? She Graduated and Left in Good Standing

All kinds of insinuations are being spread all over the internet about the fact that I am not currently teaching at FSU when the answer to that question is really very simple. I was never faculty at FSU in the first place. I was a PhD candidate at FSU who taught there and the reason I no longer teach there is because I graduated and the FSU College of Social Work has a policy against hiring their own PhD graduates. The only possibility would be temporary adjunct teaching but current PhD students have priority over available teaching slots over adjuncts and this term the current PhD students filled all of those slots.

That is the only reason I am no longer teaching there. I graduated. I was not fired or in any way dismissed. My teaching evaluations were favorable. All kinds of lies are being posted about me. Had I been guilty of the highly erratic, unstable behavior my detractors are alleging, I would have been expelled from the program and never would have been allowed to graduate.

One of the false postings maintained that I graduated and then was fired as a teacher. Again, this is completely false and I have references who will verify that I was never fired, not before or after graduation. The truth is that I left FSU in good standing in every way: as a student, researcher and teacher.

If anyone has any doubts about this, I will be happy to provide to anyone who gives me their verifiable name and a professional affiliation, the names and contact information of references, people at FSU who actually worked with me, who know me well, who can vouch for the fact that none of the lies being posted about me are true and that in fact, I left in good standing in every way.

Perhaps the silliest allegation being made by people who never even met me and were never in my classes, is that I “consumed” the last two classes talking about my internet postings and problems. Nothing could be further from the truth. The last two classes consisted of exams and class exercises having nothing to do with my internet postings and I have the PowerPoints to prove the content I covered in my classes.

So what we have here is the unsubstantiated assertions of my anonymous attackers versus verifiable references to people who have actually worked with me at FSU, who know me well. I will leave it to the readers to decide which is more credible.
