The PE teacher even flashed her breasts while posing with five students in a photo booth at the prom, the panel heard.

The 44-year-old is married and was head of physical education at the Norwich school from January 2008.

She admitted her actions were unacceptable professional conduct but said as she was under the influence of alcohol at the time and could not recall the events.

The disciplinary panel heard the case on Oct. 26 and has recommended the former PE teacher be banned from a classroom for the next two years for her behavior at the prom.

She would be able to appeal after serving out the ban and could get a new teaching job.

According to The Sun, Lake has said on Facebook: "I've made a massive mistake which has led to a change in my career path."

"I couldn't be happier. 2020 is going to be my year."

Mrs Lake -- who started boozing with other teachers before the prom -- said she was so drunk she could not remember the night.

According to iTV, the PE teacher was in good standing prior to the student prom drunkeness that got her fired.

She has also said she sought treatment for alcohol abuse and would not drink at school events again.

"The panel also took account of the uniquely influential role that teachers can hold in pupils' lives and the fact that pupils must be able to view teachers as role models in the way they behave," the disciplinary panel wrote of the decision, according to EDP.

"The panel considered that Mrs Lake's behavior, in committing the misconduct whilst holding a position of authority, as a teacher of many years' experience could affect public confidence in the teaching profession."

The panel heard Mrs Lake was under the influence of alcohol at the time the events took place and could not recall what had happened, however she accepted them.
