TEL AVIV, ISRAEL - JUNE 29: A barmaid mixes cocktails at the Barman's 2009 drinks fair on June 29, 2009 in Tel Aviv, Israel. Despite the downturn in the economy, which has seen many alcohol importers cutting back on advertising, some of the leading foreign drinks suppliers were on hand to show off their wares to the bar and restaurant professionals in Israel's most cosmopolitan city.

When will these teachers learn?

A 41-year old ex-math teacher at Grant High School in Ingleside paid a pair 14-year-old girls to do some housework around her home last January, Assistant State's Attorney Fred Day told the Daily Herald.

But she gave them more than cleaning supplies and cash.

Kym Krocza, of the 3600 block of Wilson Road, pleaded guilty to liquoring up and offering the teens marijuana during that visit in January of 2009.  

Lake County Circuit Judge James Booras charged Krocza with a misdemeanor after she fessed up of supplying the minors with booze and pot.

Judge Booras reduced Krocza's charge from felony to a misdemeanor because the ex-teacher did not have any prior criminal charges, but fined her and ordered her to perform 150 hours of community service.

The ex-math teacher has been banned from teaching while on probation, she is also not allowed around minors.
