A substitute teacher has been fired after making racist comments to a student.
The girl’s mother, Jameila, tells Fox 4CK, “I got a call from the principal, saying that he needed to tell me that there was a teacher that was removed from the school for using racial derogatory remarks with my daughter.”
Jameila says the teacher told her daughter, “Don’t give me your ugly black girl face.”

Fox4KC reports that the teacher was removed from the school within 20 minutes.
A district representative said that the student was interviewed about the incident.
Jameila, who used to work for the school district as a before and after school site coordinator and a paraprofessional, says that bullying is a growing problem at Richard Warren Middle School. “There’s been ongoing problems with the staff being bullies at the school.”
She also shared a story about a student who was permitted to wear a white hood worn by members of the KKK to a Halloween party.
“I think we need to take a look at the leadership there and all of the staff and substitutes need to be retrained and learn how to talk to children and remain professional.”
