A substitute teacher in Florida is in hot water after authorities say she was so drunk in front of her second grade students that she didn’t even know what day it was.
Holly Joel, 52, now faces charges of disorderly intoxication, disturbing the peace and child neglect, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Sanford police say the incident went down on Tuesday when staffers at Bentley Elementary School became suspicious of her actions in the classroom, in which she fell down when the principal asked her to stand up. While she didn’t know it was Tuesday, she did answer correctly when asked the name of the current president.
“Obama,” she said, according to the police report.
Police say she also had a water bottle that smelled of alcohol. Joel told police that her difficulties were because she was tired.
School officials said she will no longer be hired as a substitute teacher.
Incredibly, this is the second time this week a story like this has surfaced. In Washington, a kindergarten teacher was fired for being “fairly intoxicated” in front of her students and then walking into a wall while being escorted to the principal’s office.
