A physical education teacher in Florida has been suspended after allegedly giving students twerking lessons.

Courtney Spruill, who teaches history and PE at Kernan Middle School in Jacksonville was suspended for 15 days without pay on July 1.

The tush-shaking tips allegedly occurred in May during a party for the girls' soccer team that took place at the house of one of the players. Spruill is the team coach.

Witnesses at the party told Duval County School Board investigators they saw Spruill drinking vodka and twerking on the players.

Investigators also say they reviewed a cellphone video of Spruill getting a lap dance from a student at the party, WPTV TV reports.

The woman who hosted the party told investigators that Spruill brought her a housewarming gift of vodka, but said she didn't allow alcohol around the kids, Jacksonville.com reports.

District investigators said Spruill's actions show "the gross exercise of poor judgment," according to documents obtained by ActionNewsJax.com.
