LOS ANGELES -- After being heckled by a class of twelfth graders, a California teacher finally lost it when she unleashed a profanity-laced tirade that one student captured on a cell phone.

According to KTLA, an unidentified teacher is now on leave from Harbor City high school after her tirade on Sept. 26.

The recording reveals the teacher yelling, “I know my f—ing s–t. Don’t f— with that. I’m tired of trying to educate you, and you guys resist every step of the f—ing way. Get the f— out of here.”

She confirmed the outburst, saying she was embarrassed but hoped to return to work next week.

Another student noted that the teacher had apologized.

The recording was made by a student using a  cellphone in a classroom at the Humanities and Art Academy at Narbonne High in the Harbor City area of Los Angeles.

Cellphones are banned in LAUSD classrooms. The situation points to ongoing concerns that instructors have about the use of cellphones in classrooms — and that the broader public might have about the possibility of being recorded at any time.
