Reprimand for teacher who took lesson while drunk

A teacher at a Glasgow secondary school has been reprimanded by the General Teaching Council for being drunk in class.

Aleksander Stelmaszuk, a technical teacher at Hyndland High School, admitted to being 'intoxicated through alcohol' while he was in charge of pupils at the school on 22 March 2012.

The BBC reports that the panel decided Mr Stelmaszuk's fitness to teach was 'currently impaired' but decided a reprimand would be 'sufficient' punishment.

The Council heard that the offence was an 'isolated incident' and Mr Stelmaszuk had shown remorse for his actions.

The co-ed school has 989 pupils on its roll, and was established in 1912.
