article imageTeacher resigns amid Ebola concerns, after returning from Kenya

Louisville - A teacher in Louisville, Kentucky resigned amid swirling frustration and fears about Ebola, after she returned from Kenya.
The teacher, Susan Sherman, recently returned from a mission trip to Kenya, but resigned from teaching at St. Margaret Mary Catholic School, according to Courier-Journal.
The school asked Sherman to take an absence of 21 days upon her return from her trip because some parents voiced their concerns about Ebola. The school also asked Sherman, who is also a registered nurse, to get a doctor's note that stated she was in good health.
Sherman chose to resign instead, according to Reuters.
According to WDRB, Sherman's letter said that she lost the trust of a large number of people and she did not make the trip without thought or prayer.
Sherman was not asked to be quarantined, but it is worth pointing out that Kenya is more than 3,000 miles away from the nearest country that has been hit with the virus.
Some states have imposed mandatory quarantines on health workers returning from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to Huffington Post.
On record, the most deadly outbreak of the virus has killed almost 5,000 people, mostly in West Africa.
