When you've been naughty at school you usually have a punishment! You either have to pick up rubbish, you get stood down or you have to write lines. 

This teacher was naughty and did lines...but not those kind of lines. 

It would've been one helluva history lesson after that!!!

There were no students in the classroom at the time and Cox did not know she was being filmed through the window pane in the door.

She now faces felony drug possession and misdemeanour paraphernalia charges.

She was released from Lake County Jail on Wednesday after posting US$1000 bond.

It is not clear how long she had been working at the school when the video was filmed last week.

Some students were outraged by the display.

"She tried to hide herself. She wasn't at her desk where we could see her.

"She was all the way in the corner where she thought we can't see her," John Rogers told CBS.

He is one of Cox's students.

Others were more concerned about her wellbeing.

"It is like a serious thing. A lot of people can get addicted to a lot of things, and something like this is, it's very heartbreaking," student Michael Sanchez said.

The school said it was grateful for the students who brought the video to their attention.

It is not known when Cox is next due in court.
