    Students told administrators at Poston Butte High School their teacher, 57-year-old Kathleen Jardine, was yelling at students and possibly intoxicated.

Jardine admitted the alcohol was hers.

    Arizona teacher drunk at school, district says

    Kathleen Jardine, a 57-year-old math teacher, blew a 0.205 on a breathalyzer test after officials arrived at the school, according to Sgt. Pat Ramirez, a Pinal County Sheriff's Office spokesman. The teacher was removed from the classroom and confirmed to be intoxicated by the school's resource officer, said Richard Franco, a Florence School District spokesman. Jardine initially denied having drunk alcohol, but she later admitted she had been drinking Tuesday night, Wednesday morning and Wednesday during her lunch break, according to Ramirez. "I was afraid I was too intoxicated to drive so I took a cab this morning," Jardine told officials after being questioned about how she got to school Wednesday morning.

    Teacher accused of being drunk at school

    The investigation began when a student in Jardine's math class called the school's main office to report that Jardine was intoxicated and yelling at students. A school resource deputy was asked to assist the principal. The deputy said he could tell Jardine was extremely intoxicated.


    Initially, Jardine denied drinking any alcohol but later admitted she drank on Tuesday night, Wednesday morning before school and during lunch in her classroom. Jardine blew a .205 breath alcohol concentration, according to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office. She told the deputy that she took a taxi cab to school because she was afraid that she was too drunk to drive.


    A school security officer went to Jardine's classroom to get her purse and discovered a half full 750 ml bottle of Fleischmann’s Vodka, an empty single serving size bottle of Beringer white wine and a half full bottle of Sunny D. Jardine confirmed the alcohol belonged to her.

    High School Teacher Suspected of Being Drunk in Class

    [Kathleen] Jardine, of Chandler, initially denied drinking, but later said she drank the night before, in the morning before school and during lunch in her classroom, the spokesman said. A school security officer later found a half-full 750 ml bottle of vodka, an empty single-serving bottle of wine and a half-empty bottle of an orange-colored drink in Jardine’s classroom, the spokesman said.

    Jardine took a breath test and it returned a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.205 percent, well above the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent, the spokesman said. The spokesman said the deputy said he asked Jardine how she got to school Wednesday, and she reportedly told him, “I was afraid I was too intoxicated to drive so I took a cab this morning.” Jardine was cited for one count of consumption of alcohol in public and was released to her daughter as this investigation continued, the spokesman said.

    Oh really? Kathleen Jardine, Arizona math teacher turns up drunk to school and continues drinking

    Prior to her arrest the Poston Butte High School, San Tan Valley, Arizona math teacher had arrived to school that morning drunk where she proceeded to drink throughout the course of the day until school authorities approached Kathleen Jardine come lunchtime after she continued slurring her words and had by then taking to cursing her students.

    Pressed, the teacher would confess she had been drinking the night before. It wasn’t until a probing of the teacher’s personal belongings turned up a half empty bottle of vodka, an empty single serve wine bottle and a bottle of Sunny D (yes the mixer too) orange juice that the teacher also confessed that she had taken to drinking during class.

    Drunken Arizona teacher arrested, vodka and mixers found in classroom

    At least she kept her pants on, unlike a teacher in Oklahoma. An Arizona math teacher was arrested at San Tan Valley high school on Wednesday after she allegedly had to take a taxi to work because she was too drunk to drive. Kathleen Jardine somehow made it into her classroom and attempted to teach, but then aroused her students’ suspicions by “yelling and cursing” at them. “She just seemed slow,” student Cole McCormick told CBS 5.

    Arizona Teacher Arrested For Being Drunk At School Has History Of Drinking On The Job

    An Arizona high school teacher who was arrested Wednesday afternoon for allegedly being drunk at school has a history of drinking on the job, something a “rigorous” background check from the school district failed to uncover. Kathleen Jardine, 57, was found with a bottle of alcohol in her math classroom at Poston Butte High School. Her blood alcohol was twice the legal limit, a Pinal County Sheriff's Office spokesman told CBS5 News. A student in her class called the office claiming that Jardine was intoxicated and yelling at students ... Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu says Jardine lost another teaching job over the same behavior. In 2011, she was fired from Belen High School in New Mexico for drinking at school.

    Hiring policies reviewed after teacher accused of being drunk at school

    The Florence Unified School Board President says their hiring policies and practices are under review, after evidence came out that a teacher who was accused of getting drunk at school was fired after similar accusations in another district.
    Teacher Kathleen Jardine, 57, was cited for drinking in public, after her students at Poston Butte High School reported her to the school resource officer Wednesday.

    ...

    Fewer than 24 hours before that incident, Gilbert police officers received a call about a person driving erratically in a school zone outside of Perry High School. The driver, identified as Jardine, was arrested for super extreme DUI. Officers say she blew a .257 on a portable breath test, which is more than three times the legal limit.


    That arrest happened at 3:40 in the afternoon. Jardine supposedly told police she was heading home from work. Her school day at Poston Butte High 13 miles away ended at 2:20, only a little more than an hour before her arrest. Sheriff Paul Babeu says it "takes a lot of work" to reach such an extreme blood alcohol content, leading Florence Unified School District authorities to now investigate the timing of her drinking to determine whether she was intoxicated in the classroom on that day as well.

    Police: Teacher arrives at school drunk, keeps drinking

    Reuters reports that 57-year-old Kathleen Jardine, a math teacher at Poston Butte High School in San Tan Valley, arrived to school under the influence of alcohol. Jardine admitted to authorities that she had been drinking the night before class, as well as the morning of class and during the school day.

    Jardine took a cab to school because she felt she was too intoxicated to drive. Her car had been impounded the night before, when she was cited for driving under the influence.

    Personnel file, 911 call released on teacher accused of drinking in class

    According to the personnel file released to 3TV, Jardine answered "no" when asked if she was ever fired from a job or resigned to prevent being fired. Three years prior to the incident at Poston Butte High last week when school resource officers say Jardine came to school drunk with bottles of vodka and wine in her classroom, the math teacher was caught drunk at school in New Mexico. She was terminated for her actions. Jardine does not disclose her history on her application to the Florence Unified School District. "It's of concern because that would've been a major red flag for us in the application process," says district spokesperson Richard Franco.

    ...

    Also part of consideration will be Jardine's arrest from the day prior to the incident at school. After a 911 caller reported a driver swerving in a school zone, police in Gilbert pulled Jardine over for suspicion of DUI. Newly released reports show that Jardine failed the field sobriety tests. The officer says that Jardine stumbled through the walk and turn test. While counting her steps out loud, Jardine supposedly turned to the officer at one point and asked him, "Did I run out of numbers?" Police searched Jardine's SUV and say they discovered a bottle of peppermint schnapps, half-empty, with the top screwed on crooked. When the officer asked Jardine if she had been drinking and driving, she allegedly said "I only drank it when I was stopped."
