How a teacher can balance between freedom of speech and professional matter

I accept this debate. I ask my opponent to more clearly word the resolution (e.g. "teachers should not have the absolute right to freedom of speech while in the classroom") in the next round so I can provide my arguments. I am going to assume that the BoP is shared.

Honestly, I do think teachers should have freedom of speech, but with boundaries on what they can talk about or how far they go into it. Teachers are looked upon as a figure of authority and if the kid had a bad home life, the teacher may become the biggest influence on the kid. This will change the kid while they might not even notice. They might think it's just being a good student.
