Middle School Teacher Suspended for Allegedly Twerking (Video)

| by Michael Allen

The Duval County School Board suspended Courtney Spruill, a physical education teacher at Fletcher Middle School in Jacksonville, Fla., for reportedly receiving a lap dance and drinking alcohol at a soccer team party back in April.

Spruill, who is also the soccer team coach, allegedly showed her students how to twerk at the party, which was held at the home of one of her players, notes Jacksonville.com (video below).

According to WTEV, the school investigation began after a student told a school softball coach about the party in May.

The student claimed that Spruill drank from a bottle of vodka, which she brought as a house warming gift, but the parent who owned the home said Spruill didn't drink any booze.

The school board investigation claimed there was evidence of “the gross exercise of poor judgement" and voted on July 1 to suspend Spruill without pay for 15 days.
