Teacher Of The Year And Hero To Drunk Drivers
We wondered yesterday if the woman who may set hundreds ofdrunk drivers
free because she failed to test breathalyzer equipment could possibly be the same woman who won a Teacher of the Year award in 2007 for her work at Sharpstown Middle School.
No way, we thought, although how many Deetrice Wallace's could there be?
Now we know -- it is the same person.

"I've just confirmed that she is a teacher at Sharpstown HS," HISD spokesman Norm Uhl tells Hair Balls. "She has been reassigned to non-school duties pending the outcome of the case."
So remember, kids -- don't drive drunk. But if you do, hope that you have a Teacher of the Year moonlighting on the breathalyzers. It might help your chances of getting into Harvard, not having that DUI conviction.
And isn't that what being a great teacher is all about?
