An unidentified teacher was recorded by a student while going on a profanity-filled outburst at the Humanities and Art Academy, located on the campus of Narbonne High School in Harbor City, Calif.
A teacher is on paid leave while school administrators investigate the Sept. 26 incident.
Before the outburst, the teacher was heckled by the student in the middle of class and then she let loose, reports KTLA (video below).
"I know my f------ s---. Don't f--- with that. I'm tired of trying to educate you and you guys resist every step of the f------ way. Get the f--- out of here," yelled the teacher.
By an amazing coincidence, the student heckler just happened to be recording the teacher and later put her outburst online.
"You know, I had a weak moment," unidentified teacher said in theDaily Breeze. "Forgive me."
The teacher aexplained how she was teaching the kids that her family traces its roots back to Italy, but she doesn't call herself an "Italian-American."
"You're an American first," she said.
The student heckler then told her she was wrong.
The student shared the recording with another instructor who actually told the teen to spread it around.
"This girl took my moment of weakness and used it against me," recalled the teacher. "And then the [other] teacher egged [the student] on to send it to her, and then they disseminated it. It's just cruel."
The teacher said she recently had an appendectomy and added, "I’ve always felt safe with my students. That’s why it hurts so much that someone would do this."
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) said they are continuing to investigate the incident.
