Jennifer Zeigler, a former Bagley Middle School teacher, testifies during her fair dismissal hearing in Murray County, Ga., on Tuesday. School officials did not renew her contract this spring after Zeigler pleaded to a DUI arrest and admitted she was drunk while on her way to school in March. The school board upheld Zeigler's firing after the five-hour hearing.
