Pinckneyville, IL  --  A teacher down in Pinckneyville could soon be out of a job.  WSIL-TV reports 7th grade Language Arts teacher Matthew Leitzen allegedly dropped a note in the hallway on December 19th, threatening the lives of school officials just days after the Newtown, Connecticut shooting.  He's been suspended without pay but the district is in the process of letting him go.  Leitzen can respond to the potential firing before he's officially dismissed.
