Tupelo teacher faces meth charges

AMORY, Miss. (AP) - A woman who taught gifted classes at a Tupelo elementary school is facing methamphetamine charges.

Superintendent Randy Shaver said 46-year-old Teresa Dill-Johnson has been suspended from her duties at Parkway Elementary.

She was charged Saturday by the Monroe County Sheriff's Department with possession of meth and possession of chemicals with intent to make the drug.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal newspaper said she was released on $10,000 bond.

Dill-Johnson has taught in the Tupelo Public School District for over a decade.

It wasn't immediately clear if she had hired a lawyer. No one answered the phone Wednesday at a number listed for her.
