  1. The school system needs to make an example of this woman. She should be suspended for life. This type of behavior is unacceptable. The Teacher’s Union should be ashamed.

  2. Really? Why is that because she is a school teacher? What if she was a carpenter, lawyer or a doctor? Should any of those people be denied of their ability to make a living for the same offense? The system already has penalties set up for this. Why damage her career for a poor decision she made in her personal life that occurred outside of the school year. Fortunately, nobody else was hurt in this situation and she will pay dearly for this victimless crime as it is. Politicians and athletes have done much worse and received less of a punishment than you suggest.

  3. Everyone makes mistakes. Fortunately no one was hurt in result to her driving under the influence. Why destroy her career and remove a teacher who obviously knows how to do her job.
    It’s summertime now and she’s going to be dealing with all these brats in August. Your brats. There are too many other things going on in the schools to be worried about this.
