(Scroll down for video) Parents are angry after learning that a teacher was partying with her students and dirty dancing with them.

The teacher of Jacksonville, Florida, is accused of getting a lap dance, twerking and drinking alcohol with her students at a party. The party took place at the home of a student.

Courtney Spruill, who works at the Kernan Middle School as a Physical Education teacher and as a football coach, was suspended without pay for 15 days over the incident after a vote from the Duval County School Board.

Authorities began investigating the allegations and reviewed videos taken by students with cell phones, which showed Spruill getting a lap dance from a student during the party.

The hostess allegedly told investigators that Spruill brought vodka to the house as a gift, but said that she did not allow alcohol around the kids. Investigators said that the teacher showed poor judgment.
