While Coffman initially believed she could resolve the issue without resorting to legal measures, the absence of a board meeting and the presence of lawyers signaled a more significant problem.

Seizing the moment to impart a valuable lesson to her students, Coffman emphasized, “You all know that the most important lesson I want you to take away from your time with me is: just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.”

As she bid farewell, emotions overcame Coffman, realizing she wouldn’t be greeting her students after the next morning’s bell. Tearfully expressing her sentiment, she reassured, “Please don’t see my empty doorways as a sign that I’ve abandoned you or that I don’t care. That empty doorway is my sign that you are still my favorite humans and that I will always be your biggest advocate.”

While her message resonated with thousands online, it faced criticism from some. In response, Coffman addressed detractors on Facebook, cautioning against the superficiality of internet fame and encouraging individuals to craft their life narratives beyond a single event. She wrote, “I am more than the day I quit. You are more than your favorite video game.”

Despite the online divide, Coffman found unwavering support from her students. Gia Glackin, one of her students, likened saying goodbye to Coffman as bidding farewell to a family member in an interview with KSHB
