    I agree that you need to talk to this individual. Right now she is not doing the work she is paid to do. Your students are suffering as a result, either directly or indirectly. The advice above is great. I'd add only a couple of suggestions. First, does this woman work for anyone else? If so, coordinate your meeting and expectations with the other teacher. Second, document what you say. It might be a good idea to have your team leader or another teacher present when you talk, at least the second time. This is a sticky situation and you need to do everything possible to work it out positively. Definitely ban all textbooks, internet use and napping. If she is expected to be working, she should be working. If the job is too much for her, she should admit to that and quit or cut down on her hours. We all know how tough going to school and working are. But if YOU did these things you would be fired, right?
