A substitute teacher who called a Leavenworth principal to a classroom to remove a student found herself booted from campus after the administrator learned the sub had made racially-charged comments to the student.

The Leavenworth School District told The Star that a contracted substitute teacher had paged the Richard Warren Middle School principal to a classroom on April 23 to remove a student.

The principal then learned that the substitute had made an offensive remark to the student.

The mother of the student told Fox4 that the teacher said, "Don't give me your ugly black girl face," at least twice in front of the class.

According to a district statement, the principal immediately documented the incident after interviewing both the student and teacher, and notified the student's parent.

Then, he asked the substitute teacher to leave school property.

"The substitute teacher's employer, Morgan Hunter, whom the Leavenworth School District contracts with for substitute teaching placements, was notified of the incident and that the substitute would not be welcome back in the district for future assignments," a district statement read.

The district, the statement read, would not tolerate discriminatory behaviors.
