A Winder-Barrow Middle School teacher who was arrested Wednesday is no longer employed by the school system, Superintendent Wanda Creel said in an e-mail Thursday afternoon.
The e-mail stated the teacher is charged with distribution/solicitation with an electronic device, reckless conduct and criminal intent to distribute methadone. According to the e-mail, an ethics complaint is being filed with the Georgia Professional Standards Commission.
Channel 2 News reports the teacher is 37-year-old Emily Smith, who taught sixth grade math. The report says Smith was arrested after allegedly arranging the sale of methadone and Xanax to an 18-year-old friend who later died. Click here to watch the full report.
