Teacher Resigns After Being Accused of Drinking Beer in Class

By Robert Paul Reyes

"After four San Antonio students reported that they saw a fifth grade teacher drinking beer in her classroom, she chose to resign.


According to Northside Independent School District elementary spokesperson Pascual Gonzalez, one of the students at Kuentz Elementary took a photo of Cynthia Flores-Rodriguez having a beer and told the principal that the teacher reeked of booze."


I don`t have the dedication or patience to be an elementary school teacher, but I admire educators who dedicate their lives to teaching our future leaders.

However I feel sympathy for Flores-Rodriquez, teaching kids is a thankless job that barely pays the bills. If I were in her situation I`d be drinking vodka, and I wouldn`t care if the brats were taping me and posting their videos on YouTube.

On a serious note this poor teacher obviously needs help, I hope she enters rehab. She`s only 39-years-old, young enough to find an easier occupation like fighting fires or cleaning skyscraper windows.
