The episode "Professor Chaos" ended on a cliffhanger (though it was revealed in the same episode) saying someone would die, in a parody of cliffhanger endings. It was revealed during this gag that Ms. Choksondik had died. In the following episode, "The Simpsons Already Did It", the boys had put some of their Sea People, brine shrimp, in her coffee as a joke.
They went to find their Sea People, to avoid getting caught, and Cartman hid inside her cadaver to avoid being discovered by the mortuary staff. It was revealed in this episode when the boys were watching the news that Mr. Mackey's semen was found in her stomach, but that did not contribute to her death. Her real cause of death is unknown.
After this incident, the students in Ms. Choksondik's class were given two weeks off school until Mr. Mackey taught for a short period. In the episode "The Death Camp of Tolerance", Mr. Garrison permanently reprised his role as their teacher until he got fired again in "Where My Country Gone?".
Her outfit consists of a long red v-necked top with white cuffs and a white trim on the hem, and a calf-length blue skirt that is possibly made of denim. She keeps her hair in a loose ponytail (held in place with a large white hair-tie) and small golden loop earrings. She has a side fringe, which is usually tucked behind her left ear (in fact, the only time it is seen loose is in "Proper Condom Use" when she is having sex with Mr. Mackey). Also in "Proper Condom Use", she is shown to be wearing large purple underpants with a frilly hem (the outline of which shows through her skirt when she bends down.) She has plain black shoes and appears to be wearing white socks or tights, but when Mr Mackey removes her clothes during "Proper Condom Use" it appears that she in not wearing anything on her feet. However, this may be a continuity error.

Ms. Choksondik had a sexual relationship with Mr. Mackey, the school counselor, in the episode "Proper Condom Use", when the two characters realize that they are attracted to each other while discussing sex education. Mr. Mackey refers to a sexual experience at a much younger age as his only one, despite having been married in "Ike's Wee Wee" while on drugs, and having many instances with Liane Cartman. He could have forgotten about this event though. Ms. Choksondik confessed to being a virgin until then.

- In an apparent play on the way children sometimes make fun of their teachers' names, the boys usually miss the obvious joke of Ms. Choksondik's unusual surname, calling her Ms. Makes-Me-Sick ("Fourth Grade") or Ms. Chokes-On-Rocks ("How to Eat with Your Butt"). However, in "The Death Camp of Tolerance", they laughed at her name, implying that they might have finally gotten the joke.
