SANFORD, Fla. —
A substitute teacher was arrested Wednesday after Sanford police said she was teaching students while she was intoxicated.
Sanford police said Holly Joel is charged with child neglect, disorderly intoxication and interfering with school administration functions.
Police said that a school resource officer assigned to Bentley Elementary School was notified on Tuesday by school staff that a substitute teacher was possibly intoxicated while she was working.
Officers said they determined that Joel was under the influence of alcohol and had interfered with “the learning environment necessary for education.”
Joel was arrested and taken to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.
