Semifinalist For Teacher Of The Year Quits Over Underage Drinking Party

Morgan, PA. (AP) -- One minute, you're up for Pennsylvania Teacher Of The Year. The next, you're quitting your job and facing corruption of minors charges.

That's the big shift in Christine Kosik's life.

Kosik and her husband are accused of hosting a party late last month in their suburban Pittsburgh home. According to police, they got a call when things became unruly. Officers allegedly found as many as 50 teens, many of whom had been drinking.

Kosik's lawyer says the teacher didn't know booze was being served. Still, the semifinalist for 2007 Teacher Of The Year is quitting.
