Teacher Needs to Take Alcohol Awareness Class

by: Mike Miller

We trust our teachers to supply our children’s minds with knowledge. We do not expect that knowledge to be about alcoholic beverages, especially when they are actually supplying them with illegal booze!

Here’s a story of an Oklahoma teacher gone bad. The 37-year-old teacher, Jennifer Kohen-has been partying with students and took it one step further and served them alcohol. She provided alcohol to underage students at parties outside of school. 

Some parents say they are outraged at this sixth grade teacher's behavior. Farrell has been a teacher at Dover Schools for several years.

"We've had at least two parties on record where juveniles were drinking and that's always a concern. It's against the law and it's unsafe," West Henry said, Kingfisher County Sheriff's Department.

What was she thinking?

Farrell brought Mike's Hard Lemonade and several minors drank it. At the second party, witnesses told deputies she brought a 30 pack of Keystone beer and a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey.

For an added kicker they say she even stayed the night, sleeping on the couch until 10 a.m. the next morning. 

She has admitted to giving alcohol to students at both parties and thinks it may have been a bad idea. For her efforts, Farrell is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  I hope she never is able to get in front of and influence school children.
