Associated Press: A Tampa Bay middle school teacher has resigned after officials say she was drunk at school.

Kylene Nelson, a language arts teacher at Rushe Middle School in Land O'Lakes, faced dismissal over last week's incident. In a letter to the district, she said her last day would be April 21, the date of the next school board meeting.

The 42-year-old reportedly forced students to dance with her before being removed from class. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says Nelson later ran from campus and passed out at a nearby recreation center. Authorities say her blood-alcohol level was more than three times the level at which Florida law considers a person impaired.

According to her Meetup profile, Kylene is interested in the following topics: Multiple Sclerosis, Scrapbooking, Card Games, Fleamarkets, Dumpster Diving, Simplicity, Volunteer, Vegetarian, Pagan, Evolution, Humanism, Atheists, Philosophy Now, Libertarian, Separation of Church and State.

Oh, and dancing drunk in junior highs ...

She has now resigned ... but do you think she should have been fired? Comment here!
