Georgia Teacher Placed on Administrative Leave After Yelling, Cursing at Students

ATLANTA – Video footage from a Georgia classroom reveals a female teacher going off on an expletive-laden rant in front of a classroom full of students.

The incident was apparently sparked by a male student’s failing to close the door behind him as he entered the Crawford Long Middle School classroom.

“I’m trying to do something, and I can’t keep babysitting you. Close the door!” the teacher can be heard screaming at the student.

When he ignores her, her anger only appears to escalate. “Stop,” she yells, “I ain’t f***ing playing with you. You want to play? Stay home with your mama.”

The teacher went on to further attack the students’ mothers, saying, “I have a f***ing job, half your mothers don’t.”

The video may never have been captured if it weren’t for the fact that another one of the teacher’s students, Yvette, was purposefully prepared to capture video proof of the teacher’s erratic behavior.

Yvette had previously complained to her aunt about the teacher.

“Two months ago, Yvette came home and said the teacher had said ‘f you’ to her and to sit down,” Yvette’s aunt, Santosha Manuel, explained. In response, Manuel told her niece to get proof if a similar incident ever happened again.

“You are talking down to them, you are talking bad about their parents,” Manuel said of the teacher’s rant.

When Manuel handed Yvette’s video over to school officials, officials took immediate action and removed the teacher from her classroom. The school district has confirmed that the teacher has been placed on administrative leave while an investigation is conducted.

“This is a personnel matter that is currently being investigated,” Atlanta Public Schools said in an official statement. “However, APS can confirm that the teacher is not currently assigned to work directly with students.”
