NE Iowa Teacher Loses License, While Another is Re-instated
State officials have taken away the teaching license of a former Northeast Iowa high school educator, while re-instating another.
The Iowa Board of Educational Examiners suspended the teaching license of Daniel Reisner of Sumner, a former teacher at West Central High School in Maynard, for allegedly being drunk while at work.
Reisner was arrested April 9th of 2018 at the school by the Fayette County Sheriff's Office, after school personnel reported that he may possibly be under the influence. It was determined that Reisner's blood alcohol content at the time was above the legal driving limit; he was charged with public intoxication.
His teaching license was suspended for 2 years, and then he must complete an ethics course before his license is given back. Before working at West Central, Reisner was a teacher at Hoover Middle School in Waterloo.
The license of another Northeast Iowa teacher, Peter Foxhoven, employed at the Oelwein Community School District, was reinstated after a suspension in April of 2017.
Foxhoven reportedly had an inappropriate relationship with a 14 year old student. Foxhoven allegedly communicated with the student through phone, text, and other social media, talking about his personal problems, some relating to his marriage.
Foxhoven's license was returned last month, after he completed an ethics course, plus a mental health evaluation, after his 18 month suspension.
