Florida Teacher Anne Wampole Suspended for Being at School Super Drunk

There are only a handful of jobs where working under the influence of alcohol may be a benefit: stripper, news blogger, game show host. High school teacher certainly isn't one of them, as Bayshore High School's Anne Wampole has found out the hard way.

The 39-year-old Bradenton, Florida, teacher was approached by an assistant principal on January 13th. The administrator detected a strong odor of alcohol, and Wampole was immediately removed from class and ordered to take two breathalyzer tests according to the Sarasota Tribune-Herald.

The tests came back with a blood alcohol level of 0.112. The legal limit to be considered intoxicated in Florida is 0.08. In other words, Wampole apparently got serious when it came to getting her drink on.

"It's a serious concern that it was that high that late in the day," Scott Martin, assistant superintendent, told the paper.

The tests were administered at about 1:30 p.m. Wampole had been in the school since 7:30 a.m. It's apparently not yet known yet if she had come to work intoxicated, or was drinking through out the day.

Wampole had been placed on administrative lead, and the Manatee County School Board will vote whether to put her on unpaid administration. She will face a hearing and could face eventual termination.

Who cares. She wasn't a damn bus driver. You hang out with dozens of shits everyday and try not to become a drunk.

I personally know this teacher as she was my daughters teacher last year. She is a very giving teacher that takes on a hard group of students. Not making excuses and yes I think she should have not been drunk. I think everyone does good and bad and since all the students know about this it would be a good example to the students that they let her teach while working with outpatient programs to improve herself.

.08 is 4 beers or 4 shots in an hour... 0.112 is about 5.5 beers or shots in about an hour.... WOW!  Serious!!!

Might be a requirement to tolerate the vile spawn infesting too many class rooms in modern-day USA.

Ex-educator writing.

You spawners can educate your own vile spawn.

In-the-know folks not too desperate or adequately warned before-hand will avoid the educational field.

Especially the K-12 venue.

And, no more property tax to pay to educate the spawners output.

Let those spewing out the unneeded creatures to pay for their own creations.

...what? .112 is serious? It's less than 50% more than .08, which is where your ability is impaired slightly. Hell, the first generally accepted drunk driving BAC limit was .15

Sheesh.

If I had to teach in Florida, I'd be drunk, stoned, and spaced out on every narcotic I could get my hands on. I'd be so messed up even that coked out pig Rush Limbaugh would have to say, "Damn, that guy's fucked up."

 Teach the kids how to roll a decent doobie instead.

No hangovers.

Likely easier to find and cheaper than booze.

Less violence with doobies from my decades of.. uhhhh... observations.

Shun the hard-core drugs.

Just be mellow.

Keep things groovy.

 Did anyone stop to ask what she did for lunch? Did someone take her to lunch and set her up?

You are mistaken if we're talking about a 300-pound male. Not knowing the weight of the person and the metabolic rate, it is impossible to determine how much alcohol was ingested.

it's the heavy metal lead.  Trust me, you don't want to be placed on administrative lead, especially in a room full of squirrels.

Glad Im not the only one that thought so.  Bravo teacher!  Wish I could get lead for being trashed at work.
