Teacher Accused of Teaching Drunk
A teacher in Marion County is pleading her case to school board members after accusations that she was drunk during class.
The school district's superintendent recommended Tuesday that Lanetta Saleh be fired from her job as a fifth grade teacher at Emerald Shores elementary in Ocala.
In October SaleH was called into the principle's office for showing signs of being drunk.
"Our school administrator observed some slurred speech, some erratic behavior patterns," Marion County School District Spokesperson, Kevin Christian told TV20.
Saleh is also accused of being drunk at a fifth grade ceremony last June.
She has hired an attorney and says the allegations are not true. Saleh is now on unpaid leave and asked for a hearing before being fired. School board members agreed. They have not yet set a date for the hearing.
