A Florida physical education and history teacher has reportedly been suspended for supposedly drinking alcohol with students and giving twerking lessons while at a party for the girls soccer team.
According to Jacksonvile.com, Kernan Middle School teacher Courtney Spruill was suspended for 15 days without pay on July 1 after visiting a party located at a student's home in May.
The sixth grade teacher is also the coach of the soccer team. Some witnesses at the party told investigators that they saw the educator drinking alcohol and dancing on the players. The mother who hosted the party said that Spruill indeed did bring vodka. However, she claims he drank soda around the kids.
WTEV reports that investigators are looking into a cellphone video that shows the teacher receiving a lap dance from a student.
Documents obtained by WTEV say that investigators of the Duval County School Board claim the teacher's actions show “gross exercise of poor judgment.”
