School district: Greeley teacher was drunk at work, should be fired
GREELEY, Colo. — A Greeley elementary school teacher could lose her job after allegedly showing up drunk to school.
On Monday night, the board of education for the Greeley-Evans School District 6 recommended that Glennis Hughes be fired. She has taught in the district for 23 years.
Two weeks ago she consented to a breathalyzer test at Billie Martinez Elementary School. Police say she blew a .132 — well above .08, the legal limit to drive.
Some of Hughes’ students came to her defense earlier on Monday.
“She said she never has had a problem with this,” student Guadalupe Baca said. “She said we shouldn’t have any concerns.”
District 6 superintendent Ranelle Lang feels otherwise, recommending that Hughes be fired based on “insubordination, immorality and neglect of duty.”AlertMe
