Laura Ann Collins, Loudoun teacher, arrested for being drunk at school

A Loudoun County schoolteacher was not interacting with students when she was allegedly under the influence of alcohol on campus, officials say.


Loudoun County Schools spokesman Wayde Bayard says that 43-year-old Laura Ann Collins, a 20-year veteran of the school system, was in a school training session at Creighton's Corner Elementary School when she was allegedly drunk.

A staff member alerted police to Collins condition. She was subsequently arrested and charged with being drunk in public. She is out of jail on her own recognizance.

Collins, 43, has been a fourth grade teacher at Creighton's Corner Elementary since the school opened in 2008.

Her biography on the school's web page leads to an error message. It's unknown whether or not Collins will return to the school.
