An Apple (Schnapps) For The Teacher

An Outback elementary school teacher has been banned from teaching for two years after she was found passed out at her desk. Honestly, if I was surrounded by second graders all day, I’d need a drink, too.

A Queensland primary school teacher was so drunk she passed out in front of her grade-two students, in one of a string of incidents that exposed children to “considerable risk”, the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) has found.

The woman, who cannot be identified, has been banned from teaching for two years after she was found drunk at school on multiple occasions over a two-year period. The tribunal recently handed down its findings against the former teacher.

The QCAT heard that on a morning in August 2016, the woman had taken several doses of Valium and drank vodka disguised in a water bottle while teaching science to grade-two students.

An ambulance was called after she fell unconscious at her desk.

Now maybe it’s just me, but if my teacher was passed out at her desk, I would shut my mouth, open a comic book, and enjoy the free day. Although maybe that explains why I’m not all that smart.

The huge predator was found on a road in Ayr, in north Queensland, after torrential rain and fierce winds resulting in heavy flooding.

I’d cast out a witty remark to lure in readers, but nothing I write could be better than @RitaPanahi’s simple brilliance: “Sharknado is real.”
