A teacher at Schallenberger Elementary School in San Jose is on leave pending further investigation into reports that she was “intoxicated while in a classroom,” according to police and school officials.
According to police, when the teacher arrived at school Friday morning, her colleagues became concerned that she was inebriated. Her fellow teachers notified school officials, who in turn called San Jose police. Officers who interviewed the teacher did not detect any obvious smell of alcohol but noticed the woman had slurred speech and was stumbling. The woman was given a chemical test and registered more than twice the legal limit of .08, according to police.
