‘I Have a F***ing Job, Half Your Mothers Don’t!’: Teacher’s Hateful Classroom Rant Caught on Camera

An Atlanta teacher has been suspended after her vulgar classroom rant was recorded by a student.

The cell phone footage shows the Crawford Long Middle School teacher berating a student for not closing the door when he came into the classroom.

She yells “I’m trying to do something, and I can’t keep babysitting you. Close the door!”

When the student doesn’t close the door, she yells “Stop! I ain’t f***ing playing with you. You want to play? Stay home with your mama.”

She added “I have a f***ing job, half your mothers don’t.”

The video was recorded by a female student who says she has been complaining about the teacher’s treatment of her for months.

Her aunt says “two months ago, Yvette came home and said the teacher had said ‘f you’ to her and to sit down. I told her, if it happened again, to get proof, and that’s what her cellphone was for and to record it so that I would have proof this time.”

She criticized the teacher, saying “you are talking down to them, you are talking bad about their parents.”

The school district would not confirm the teacher’s name but did confirm that she has been placed on administrative leave.

The district released a statement, saying “Atlanta Public Schools promotes a culture of ethics to which all employees are expected to adhere. This is not a personnel matter that is currently being investigated. However, APS can confirm that the teacher is not currently assigned to work directly with students.”

    Thank God for cell phone cameras but why does something always have to be on camera before it is dealt with. Obviously that is a rhetorical question that I know the answer to but how wonderful it would be to live in a world where the majority and those in charge would deal with issues of abuse, brutality, and prejudice before these things escalated and hurt innocent people. Decent people don’t allow or permit this sort of behavior and yet EVERY DAY I read stories of the innocent being mistreated and/or abused by someone in charge with very clear anger issues. How do we stop this and why can’t we get those in charge to start dealing with these problems early on. Just because it is not on film does not mean it doesn’t exist, and all too often it only appears on film because it has existed for way too long.

    Teacher was wrong to go off like that. Next is the parents are wrong for raising kids like this as well. I can only imagine the crap these kids did to get this teacher to this point. This “poor” female student is laughing loud to further antagonize the teacher for a better video. Shame on everyone.
    Teacher should be suspended, be made to take a course out of pocket to learn how to handle these type of situations better, and in no way be fired.

      I agree that children as a whole these days are left to little or no discipline at home. They are antagonistic towards their teachers and show little respect for authority, let alone themselves. And anyone who takes a job as an educator in our school systems should be fully aware and prepared for such. This woman has no business being a teacher, period. First of all, I cannot even tell from the video which voice is the teacher’s and which voices are the students. She sounds about as uneducated and ignorant as a child, let alone whiny, rude and obnoxious. This woman took a job to educate these students, not stoop to their level with her choice of language and her insults to the children. She didn’t raise them up, try to be congenial about the oh so difficult talk of closing a door, she just lost her temper, swore at the kids and then made a disgusting comment that was certainly not aimed to make them feel good about themselves. Yes, the parents of these children have failed as well, which sadly parents will do. But for a teacher to waste any and all opportunity to build these kids up and in turn knock them down verbally, that’s unforgivable. This woman is obviously burnt out on being a teacher, and a decent human being to boot. She should be fired, and in reality no one like this should ever be allowed in a classroom. When this is how our teachers act, how can we expect the children to act any different?
