Initial reports from Lake Central students indicated woman came to school in bra, panties, robe Inappropriately dressed teacher taken to hospital

By Carmen McCollum - carmen.mccollum@nwi.com, (219) 662-5337 | Posted: Friday, June 4, 2010 12:05 am

ST. JOHN | A Lake Central High School science teacher came to school Wednesday dressed inappropriately and appeared confused, prompting school officials to call an ambulance and the police.

Lake Central Superintendent Gerald Chabot said school starts at 7:15 a.m., and the incident was reported to the office very early by teachers and students.

Initial reports from students who took cell phone pictures indicated the teacher came to school in a bra, panties and robe. Chabot declined to confirm that, simply saying she was dressed inappropriately.

"We went into the classroom to see what was happening and it was very evident there was some sort of medical condition she was under going," Chabot said. "There were key pieces of clothing missing. She was dressed inappropriately. I can't speculate on what might have been going on. There was a medical, behavioral issue in terms of speech and behavior. It could have been due to a prescription or a number of other things. The hospital is evaluating."

School officials called an ambulance and police. The teacher, whose name was not released, was taken to St. Margaret Mercy Healthcare Centers about 9 a.m. Chabot said the teacher was under observation for most of Wednesday. He said he did not know if she had been released.

St. John Police Chief Fred Frego said police responded to the call at 7:54 a.m. Wednesday at Lake Central in reference to a 10th-grade teacher acting strangely. She was scantily clad and alone in a classroom when police arrived, he said.

Chabot said the woman is a first-year teacher. He said calls were made to her fiance, who came to assist her. Although police would not release her name, Frego said she has a Highland address.

Chabot said school was out for students Thursday and out for teachers today.

He said the school will not take any action at this point against the teacher because the incident is being viewed as a "medical distress situation" unless they learn something different later from the police and medical report.

Police have not arrested or filed charges against the woman, Frego said.

That is OUTRAGEOUS!!!

7:15 a.m. For school kids? No decent person is getting up at the crack of dawn to do anything.

People who wake up early and expect the rest of the world to cater to them are destroying the universe.

They should be rounded up and exterminated, along with people who put mustard on hamburgers.

They are missing critical information. “First year teacher” makes me think she was young. “. . . reported to the office very early by . . . students” suggests otherwise.

The incident was Wednsday. School was out on Thursday. So it was the last day of school. Give the students something to talk about all summer.

I suspect drugs, but not necessarily illegal ones. Could be a really bad reaction/side effect of a prescription.

I know I'm having a bit more of a side effect of the pain medication, Tramadol, that I'm taking for knee pain, than seems usual according to what I read. (But that's why I don't take the first dose of the day unil *after* I get to the office.)

And maybe she has a brain tumor. Inaapropriate behavior has been associated with some tumors and some early dementia.

It may not be as funny as it sounds.

Tramadol does some screwy stuff to me. First it knocks me out for a short period then makes me feel like I’m wired on speed or something.

Tumors are NEVER funny... even when Arnold says it.

You are right though, never thought about that.

Ouch. I like mustard on hamburgers — though I think people that would abuse a fine burger with mayonnaise should be strung up.

Yes, especially when mixed with alcohol. She could very easily have been sleepwalking.

My niece teaches in that area and they are an hour ahead of neighboring areas. She says it is terrible having to get up so early and then when possible weather conditions they have an hour delay for school to begin. In that case each one is responsible to let others know of the delay. It is crazy!

I don’t know how many kids have nightmares about going to school in their underware, but seeing your own teacher come to school in hers would sure make for restless nights.

I’m Texan. We don’t put mayo on anything but tuna ... and, even then, its usually miracle whip.

Mustard, on the other hand, is universal. Several years back Burger King had to release a Texas Whopper with mustard on it.

I’m with you on the ‘no musTARD on hamburgers’ (or ANTHING) issue..

But I get up at 5:00 AM, get dressed, walk the dogs, feed/water the dogs, get breakfast for my family, make my wife coffee, and drive to work so I don’t have to sit in the parking lot that is a ‘freeway’.

It’s all the people who leave at the same time expecting no traffic that cause problems on the highways and byways.

Well that settles it then. No more will I rise at 4:15.

What was I thinking?

Maybe it was mustard poisoning?

Of course one of many caveats to this whole gettin up at the crack-o-noon thing is that it also means that the people getting up at zero-dark-hundred to provide critical services like making doughnuts, eclairs, and Egg McMuffins will be sleeping in as well.....the horror.

“Maybe she thought it was still a dream?”

lol! Such a true statement...I so remember my anxiety dreams which would occur as the end of summer was approaching and a new school year beginning. Dreams of showing up late or showing up only in my slip and trying to find more clothing before the bell rang for class to begin were a constant experience.
Ah, retirement is wonderful:-)

Ok I’ve lived in Texas, but can’t stomach mustard. Miracle whip is not my favorite but it is better than mustard...Best Foods/Hellman’s is grteat. In some foreign countries McDonalds has mayonaise dispensers for the french fries along with ketchup...strange huh.

Speaking of Texas, what do you use when eating rattlers?

If I wasn’t so sure that you were being sarcastic, I’d point out to you that our military men and wimmin are usually well into their work day, even in peace time by 0715 hrs.

I don’t get the mayo on fries thing either. I was on vacation in Flordia (I think) and a McDonalds put mayo on a breakfast sandwich. Who wants an egg mcmuffin with mayo? Blech. The British use malt vinegar on fries — which I actually like.

Not sure what you’re referencing on the ‘rattlers’. I’ve eaten rattlesnake once (fried). Tastes like alligator ... kinda like chewy chicken. There is an appetizer that some steakhouses around here have called “rattlers” ... I think it just fried stuffed jalapeno peppers. Never had them, though.

I do some work with overseas locations - so the early start can be advantageous.

I do not call anyone at home outside of whatever hours are set as appropriate (or 9-to-9 if unspecified). I do call work voice mail when appropriate.

There really shouldn't be a rush to judgement here. The lady may have had a small stroke while dressing to go to work.....and the robe and then going to the school may have been instinct.

Her "confusion" that was reported seems to be more illness-related than drug-induced, especially since it was early morning, a time when a lot of neurological brain incidents occur.

Charles Whitman. Do any of you ladies know who Charles Whitman is?

didn't he shoot all them folks from the texas suppository building? er... I'm sorry that was Lee Harvey Oswald.

Whitman shot those people in Austin... That's affirmative. Charles Whitman killed twelve people from a twenty-eight-storey observation tower at the University of Texas from distances up to four hundred yards.
