Teacher Drunk During Field Trip

4th-Grade Teacher Drunk During Field Trip

How would you feel if your child's teacher was drunk while on a class field trip?

Wisconsin elementary school teacher Maria Caya vomited and passed out during a fourth-grade field trip to a bowling alley, The Huffington Post reports. At the hospital where she was taken after she fell ill, her blood alcohol level measured 0.27, more than three times the legal limit, and she allegedly told staff she had been drinking before the trip.

To find out how the Janesville School District has responded, read the whole story at The Huffington Post.

Teacher needs to be fired and put into rehab so she can understand what she did wrong!

Field trip or not, most places would fire you for being drunk while on the job. As a parent, i would be furious to find out a teacher in a position to supervise any children got drunk while on duty, even if the drinking occurred beforehand, she is supposed to be an adult, and an adult knows you don't get drunk before you go to work, no matter how bad you think you need it.
