    Elementary school teacher charged with drunk in public

    Michael J. Corbett

    A Loudoun elementary school teacher was charged May 21 with drunk in public after attending school intoxicated.

    According to a release from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, police were called down to Pinebrook Elementary School in Aldie just before 10 a.m. for concerns of a drunk teacher. Wayde Byard, the public information officer for LCPS, said the incident was staff reported.

    Michael J. Corbett, 28, of Leesburg faces one charge of drunk in public.

    Corbett, who hails from Pittsburgh, is in his second year of teaching at Pinebrook, where he served as a second grade teacher. He was hired in August of 2012.

    In December, Corbett was arrested and pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated, for which he received a 90-day suspended jail sentence and had his license suspended for a year. On April 26, he was pulled over and subsequently charged for driving under a suspended license. A hearing for that incident is scheduled for June 23.

    "We stress with our employees that our Employees Assistance Program is always open," said Byard. "Our teachers are human beings to us. They're more than just a number."

    Corbett is currently on paid administrative leave. He has a hearing Sept. 17 in the General District Court.


    Seems to me this guy doesn’t get it. Time to terminate his employment from LCPS. Why paid Administrative leave?
