She was my 6th grade teacher. I hated her. Good riddance.

And let me add, I am not saying any teacher should be allowed to teach under the influence. But how do you know this teacher is under the influence? Do you let your child go in a teacher's room thinking they are hungover or high? As a parent, there is no way in hell I would let my child be around a teacher like that & I would get something done about it & ensure no child is exposed to that type of behavior.
All I can tell you if you are aware of a teacher coming in hangover,on drugs, etc - report the teacher to the state. If you willing know a teacher is under the influence and do nothing, then you are failing the children yourself. It may do no-good (as with the nurses I worked with that were reported and usually nothing was done) but at least you know you did the best you could.
The family and friends I know that work at Allardt are not druggies or thieves and care for the children (again, not referring to the teacher accused). They would never do what this woman is accused of and for anyone to slander the whole school over one's actions is narrow-minded.
I do not know the teacher accused and if she is found guilty, she should pay the consequences. But the whole school shouldn't be judged over her actions.
How long has Allardt been having teacher problems? It's been going on for decades! Quit making excuses! I dont know the teacher in question, but there is one I do know, and she is far from being a saint.

on 1 forum you all are bitchig because the students at SFE are not getting good enough grades and on this ones the kids are getting the grades but the teachers have some problems with keeping their social life at home----maybe we should all homeschool our kids-------and by the way pine haven and york as well as SFe have teachers who are not fit to teach--What is a parent to do?

well... I didn't get to read all the posts here but if some students stole from this teacher, they should definitely be suspended. I think we can all agree with that, right?

you don't think students who steal should be punished? I guess this explains the state of our society. sad day for america, and just days after september 11th. we can do better. I am thankful for a great country and I am thankful for this great teacher who modeled "good parenting" when these kids were caught stealing. If we had more teachers like this we would be in a different place.

happy to have good teachers, a great country and I will never forget (9/11).

I'm not making EXCUSES for anyone. There are good and bad EVERYWHERE you go. I'm not the one stating there is a drug or alcohol issue with a staff. If I knew of one (as I have with staff I've worked with), I would notify the proper authorities. Doesn't matter what type of place it is (school, hospital, etc) when it comes to safety and esp with children.
Instead of pointing your finger at me, inform the proper authorities (school board, state,etc) if you know of someone who works at school under the influence.
Or better yet, get into politics since you feel so strongly about changing Allardt.

If a person knows something is wrong and does nothing about it, they are guilty too. I have no idea who you are referring to and even if it is a friend or relative of mine, if they do something wrong then they have to pay the consequences. And as with anybody, we all deserve a fair trial.

You seem to want to argue with me over something I think we all agree on - if someone steals from school, charity, etc - they need to pay the consequences. If a teacher, nurse, etc has an addiction problem and rehab doesn't work for them, they do not need to hold their position.

All I pointed out was not to judge all of Allardt's staff as thieves or druggies and everyone deserves a fair trial.

Again, I have no idea who you are talking about and how you know they go to work hungover but instead of posting on topix, do something about it. If the person does have an issue, it maybe for the best that they get help.

QUIT MAKING EXCUSES AND REPORT THE PERSON!

Really though, every school has bad and good teachers. It;s been awhile since I was in school and I remember the good and bad ones.

I've heard horror stories about bad teachers in Fentress and there are some I think should be given the boot like you said. There should be random drug tests but it all comes down to $. And of course, if a parent has an issue with a teacher, it is difficult to really get something done about it because of the politics.

But to get back to the topic of this forum, I do not know the teacher in question and I hate to say seems the evidence is overwhelming but if she is found guilty, then she should be punished. It is appalling she would break the trust of the community as she is accused of doing and there is no excuse for anyone stealing from a charity or otherwise.
