BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - An update on the substitute teacher who's profanity-laced tirade was caught on cell phone video; East Baton Rouge Parish School Board Superintendent Barnard Taylor says the substitute teacher in question is no longer at Glasgow Middle School.

He goes on the add that she has been removed from the substitute teaching list in the district.

A mother complained to the school and 9News and on Wednesday the superintendent removed the teacher from the list of potential substitutes.

Shocking video that was secretly recorded inside an 8th grade classroom in Baton Rouge shows a teacher's profanity-laced tirade against her students. The mother of the student who recorded the video is in disbelief at what she saw.

Warning: Although we took out the most severe curse words, there are still a few words in this story that are intended for mature audiences only.

The video shows a full-time substitute teacher in front of an 8th grade class at Glasgow Middle School shouting obscenities. The rant and tirade goes on for about five minutes.

In one part of the cell phone video, the teacher says "I ain't gonna argue with your ass. I'm gonna pop your ass in the mouth, I'm gonna drop your ass."

She was also recorded saying "This is my last time cussing or fussing with this class, because on Wednesday I'm writing your motherf****** asses up."

"Disbelief – I just couldn't believe it. I was like in shock," said Terri McLendon, mother of the student who recorded the video. "My son had been punished behind this lady and he had just gotten his phone back Sunday, and this was recorded on Monday. So I just couldn't believe it," McLendon added.

It appears she was upset about her students not willing to be taught. "You don't wanna learn? Get the f***- That's how I feel," said the teacher in the video as she pointed to the door.

"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," McLendon said.

The teacher was also recorded saying "If you're sitting here looking at me in rare form, and you should know, when I was in college and when I was in High school, I was a mother f***** beast."

"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," said Glasgow Middle School Principal Dianne Talbot.

When asked if substitute teachers are prepared for what they may encounter in a classroom, Talbot responded that every teacher in the parish system, substitute or not, must undergo an orientation process.

The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board says the district's Human Resources department is reviewing the matter and will determine the fate of the substitute school teacher.

It is not known how long the woman has been a substitute teacher for the East Baton Rouge Parish School System
