Kindergarten teacher suspended in Hawkins County

A female kindergarten school teacher in Hawkins County was recently suspended after consumed beer cans were discovered inside a classroom, News Channel 11 reported on September 15.

According to reports, the unidentified teacher at Mt. Carmel Elementary School has been “suspended without pay” after another teacher on September 10 discovered two empty cans of beer inside the classroom. The suspended teacher reportedly was on leave during the time of the discovery and it is not clear who consumed the alcoholic beverages or if it was consumed inside the school premises. The empty beer cans were discovered during class hours. Hawkins County Schools Assistant, Director Nedra Jackson, stated that school administrators and the school system are working to come up with an accurate and fair investigation.
