Beth Brotherton, a spokesperson for Greenville County Schools released the following statement:

A teacher at Mauldin High School was placed on administrative leave Thursday morning after confessing to the school’s administration that she forged a medical document.  The administration contacted law enforcement. After questioning and further investigation the teacher was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. When confronted with the evidence the teacher resigned her employment with Greenville County Schools.
