A Georgia teacher sparked fury after going on a deranged tirade against her students as they cowered behind their desks, warning them to “watch me in the streets.”
The footage, from Dacula High School, about 40 miles from Atlanta, was filmed by seventh-graders in a language arts class before sharing the tirade online.
“Sorry, I’m a little different, maybe I’m too hood, I don’t know,” the teacher said as she berated her class, which allegedly erupted after she refused to let the kids use the bathroom.
Parents reacted with outrage after seeing the footage, which was shared with fox5and many called for the teacher to be fired after the episode.
The shocking footage, which was filmed under a desk by a student in the class, showed terrified schoolchildren cringing as the educator erupted into a foul-mouthed tirade.
The footage, which was filmed by a stunned student under his desk, begins with the educator yelling at the youngsters, telling them, ‘Right now, I don’t want you to talk to me.’
“They act weird, and they joke and they laugh and it’s all funny, but they keep the same energy and they see me on the street.”
His menacing threat to the students, who were around 12 years old, was again followed by a warning to ‘keep the same energy’.
Because y’all are tough and tough, if you have an attitude about it, do it to my boss, I don’t care. I’m just telling you how I feel. Leave me alone.’
Following the outlandish tirade’s emergence on social media, several parents attacked the teacher, questioning how she was able to become an educator.
Amanda Atkinson, who says she is the mother of one of the boys in the class, reacted furiously when she shared the video on her Facebook, saying: ‘These are 12 and 13 year old BOYS. Other people’s children, too.
“This video bothers me so much,” she continued, calling the teacher a “nutty” when she revealed that her son was “swaying uncomfortably in his seat because he had been denied his human right to use the toilet.”
‘My heart aches watching. She has to be held accountable. We cannot continue to let this disgusting behavior from adults pass us by and expect children not to act badly for it.
‘Dácula needs to do better. He has to go, no questions asked. And he’d better keep the same energy all the way to the unemployment office.
The episode occurred at Dacula High School, about 40 miles from Atlanta, Georgia.
The school’s principal, Kimberley Bussey, pictured, apologized to parents after the video was discovered and insisted that “appropriate disciplinary action” will be taken.
Sendy Quintero, a parent at the school, reacted to the shocking video online, saying she hoped “Dacula High School would do something about it.”
Sendy Quintero, also a Dacula Middle School parent, also reacted to the shocking tirade online, saying, “This teacher is definitely in the wrong place by not letting the kid go to the bathroom.”
“Hopefully Dacula High School does something about it.”
Amid mounting outrage after the tirade spread at the school, Principal Kemberly Bussey sent an email statement to parents to defuse tensions after the episode.
‘Yesterday we received an alert regarding allegations related to inappropriate behavior and language by one of our teachers.
We immediately alerted the Gwinnett County Public Schools Human Resources Department, which launched an investigation. Inappropriate behavior by staff and/or students will not be tolerated.
“Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken as necessary after the investigation is complete.”
