LA teacher loses it, hurls profanity at 8th-grade classroom

A Louisiana substitute teacher went into a profanity-filled tirade in an 8th-grade classroom last week – and it was all recorded by a cell phone.

While substitute teachers are frequently mistreated by students, Bob Bowden, Founder of Choice Media, told Fox News it was hard to be sympathetic when a teacher can’t control their temper, but the school should have had more control over the situation.

“They should have been sort of watching,” Bowden said. “Especially if you have a new teacher coming in to the school who obviously doesn’t know the protocol, doesn’t know the kind of classroom that she’s going to be dealing with.”

An update from Baton Rouge TV station WAFB-9 reports that the teacher is no longer at the school.

“Disbelief – I just couldn’t believe it. I was like in shock,” Terri McLendon, mother of the student who recorded the video, told the station. “I don’t talk to my child like that, she has no good right. She has to handle those kids accordingly. Like you know, send them to the principal’s office. None of them deserved to be cursed out like that.”

Glasgow Middle School Principal Dianne Talbot said that every teacher in the system undergoes an orientation process.

“For the parents benefit, we don’t want the parents to believe that this is something we would condone nor is it something that any school would ever condone,” Talbot said.

Caution – video contains profane language.

    It’s getting out of control. Basically, anything negative against a black person, is RACISM. Regardless of what THEY may do.

    For example: A black guy robs a bank and the police aprehend him. They tackle and shackle him, just the same as if he were mexican, white, or anyother race; yet the fact remains. He was tackled and shackled because HE WAS BLACK – NOT because he was a bank robber.

    It’s out of control and the sad thing is: The COURTS keep allowing these people to get away with it and white people keep their mouths shut. People need to start protesting as this, in fact, is racism and social injustice.

      It is definitely out of control. If you pay attention it is the blacks who are always whining racist

    I don’t use profanity but I bet if you locked me in a room full of 8th graders (who were most likely trying to take advantage and “test” the sub teacher I could possible start.

      You are assuming.

  3. Debra Grier says:

    This is why so many people prefer to home school.

    …so we have to cut teachers some slack because they deal with a lot of “stress”, but when a cop takes down a felon and uses force all of a sudden he is the devil? Sure, police officer don’t face any “stress” from violent felons. Wow, have we got our priorities screwed up in this country.

    Aren’t there any White teachers in Louisiana???

    Subs really have limited options – she should have sent half the class to the principal…really that’s about the only disciplinary option given to a sub. Substituting is not an easy job because the kids know they can get away with a lot more (remember when we were in school – when we had a sub, we thought, “oh joy!” Let’s have a fun day!” Unless of course, the sub was a retired teacher in the district who knew the students and the system. Or the sub was the principal’s wife (one of my regular subs in junior high was the principal’s wife…we learned real quick not to get her agitated).

    Dealing with behavior issues in the schools is difficult enough for regular teachers – and ten times a hard for a sub. It’s no longer like it was when I was in junior high – a time when teachers brought you to the front of the class for a few swats with the paddle. Theoretically, the best way to deal with kids is to keep them interested and occupied with the creative lesson. Regular teacher know the kids and how to handle them. The sub is in the classroom for one hour and may not sub the same class again. Thus, the sub should just try to keep things “fun” for the period. If the teacher expects more, then try another sub the next time around.
