WAGONER, Okla. (CNN) — A new teacher is missing her first week on the job after police say she showed up to school drunk.

Lorie Hill was arrested Monday — the first day back at school for teachers at Wagoner High School in Oklahoma.

Police say two other teachers found Hill in a classroom — intoxicated and not wearing any pants.

“When our officers interviewed her she did admit to having some vodka yesterday morning before she came to school.”

Hill is facing a public intoxication charge.

    good thing the teachers union will save her job. it would be tragic if a fine upstanding teacher like this lost her job because of something so trivial as showing up to school drunk and pantsless. i couldn’t begin to count how many times everyone does that in the private sector.

      I in a union and we would not represent that teacher. Not all unions will represent something that bad.

        Correction: I am in a union and we would not represent that teacher. Not all unions will represent something that bad.

        really? like the teacher in madison who was busted for watching p0rn at school on a school computer and the union not only got him his job back but got him back pay too? justify that one.

      The teacher’s union is not as strong as people want to believe. Last year we didn’t even have dental at the school I worked at! Does your union get you dental? And no, our union wouldn’t have backed this character up.

    “missing her first week of school”????
    How about “lost her job”?
    She certainly does not show the good judgment I want in someone to whom children are entrusted!
    1 – drunk; 2 – undressed; 3 – no self-control (drinking or weight); 4 – no self-respect (drinking, weight)

    The union and tenure are definitely not as strong as most think. I have tenure and belong to the union and I just got fired for leaving 5 high schoolers for 7 minutes to make a copy about 50 feet away, go figure. Not to mention I had a perfect record and it is not specified anywhere in policy or otherwise that we are not allowed to leave the room for 5 minutes.

    I bet those students who seen her pantsless are scared for life. Where’s Al Bundy,was she wearing shoes?
