Teachers and alternative schools-- my favorite subject

Looks like the Seattle School District finally nicked a teacher for fraudulently collecting $120,000 in overtime pay. I shudder to think what her regular salary was. Strangely, they don't mention the woman's name. A union thing? That probably greases the wheels for her to be another sought-after teacher in another district.

A routine budget review by the school's new principal this fall turned up time slips on which the teacher claimed more hours than she could possibly have worked, according to a Seattle Police Department incident report.

The woman, who has worked for the district for 32 years, offered to repay the district. She has not been charged.
