TAMPA — A kindergarten teacher at Seffner Elementary was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and child neglect Friday night after Tampa police found more than 9 ounces of marijuana in her home, according to an arrest report.

Police executed a search warrant on the home of Tracy Domante, 4314 W Barcelona Ave., Friday evening and found about 270 grams of green plant substance and 119 grams of a tan wax substance that both tested positive for marijuana, the report said.

Officers found some of the substance in the bedroom of Domante's 15-year-old son, the report said. Domante told police she was aware of people smoking marijuana inside her house in front of her son.

Domante, 47, is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, both felonies. She is also charged with child neglect, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for drug use, which are misdemeanors. She is being held in the Hillsborough County jail on $11,000 bail.

Domante, who has worked at Seffner Elementary since 2004, will be suspended with pay until her case can be reviewed at the next School Board meeting in December, Hillsborough County schools spokesman Stephen Hegarty said.
