Maybe her parents should have told her she didn't need a four year degree to be a drug dealer? What a waste of time, money & an education!!! There are people out here who could only dream of graduating college and becoming a school teacher to help children! A drug dealer? She just threw her degree away like it was nothing!

So Danny, what's been going on with the comments section? It's been going wonky on my end, almost like the old system, and I'm seeing comments in the ticker that aren't displayed with the article. Is this just a problem with my comp or is something up with the site, just wondering?

I really hope this isnt true. According to the article, they seem to be goin off of the word of one individual, an individual who is also a little criminal shit. This might be the little bastard trying to get back at a teacher for one reason or another.

Most teachers make decent pay, not great pay, but decent pay. Selling drugs really does not bring in a huge amount of pay, unless you are doing it on a large scale. I hardly think this came even close to a large scale operation.

This is a viscous lie!!!! There is NO proof anything was given to the student, only the statement of one delinquent. Since the time of the arrest this teacher has not lost her liscence or her job. I hope she sues the school district and leaves them completely discredited!
