An Atlanta teacher is reportedly under investigation after dropping a series of F-bombs in a scream-filled tirade in front of her class.
The incident was recorded on a cell phone by one of her students at Crawford W. Long Middle School, whose slogan is, “Every child is a story yet to be told.”
“I’m trying to do something, and I can’t keep babysitting you. Close the door!” the frustrated teacher yells at one of her students. “I said close the f-ing door. Why would you walk away from it with it open?”
After slamming the classroom door herself, the teacher yells, “Stop! I ain’t f-ing playing with you. You want to play? Stay home with your mama!”
“I have a f-ing job. Half your mothers don’t,” she continues.
According to WSB-TV, the guardian of a student on campus said she was in the building when the principal found out what was going on, and seconds later, the teacher was pulled from her classroom.
Santosha Manuel said she instructed her niece to shoot the video.
“Two months ago, Yvette came home and said the teacher had said ‘F you’ to her and to sit down,” Manuel said. “I told her, if it happened again, to get proof, and that’s what her cell phone was for and to record it so that I would have proof this time.”
Manuel told the station the teacher needs to explain why, during her rant, she disrespected her student’s mothers.
“You are talking down to them, you are talking bad about their parents,” Manuel said.
The district confirmed the teacher works at the school, and issued the following statement:
“Atlanta Public Schools (APS) promotes a culture of ethics to which all employees are expected to adhere. This is a personnel matter that is currently being investigated. However, APS can confirm that the teacher is not currently assigned to work directly with students.”
