(KMOX) - A teacher at a Pennsylvania middle school has been put on administrative leave after she was recorded on video delivering a racist tirade directed at a student's parent in the school parking lot.

The woman is heard using the N-word and a homophobic slur, after getting into a minor fender bender with a black driver, telling him to "go back to your welfare, to your Section 8 house."

Officials at Drexel Middle School say the woman has taught there since 2008 and is currently on leave "without pay" while the matter is investigated, according to CNN.

Watch part of the video shared on Facebook here. Warning: It does contain some adult language: 

In the video, she says the man is "probably on welfare too."

He replies, "Not even a little bit. Six figures a year, ma'am."

"It's because I'm young and I'm black, the reason why you would say that," he says.

"That's right, because you're black," she says. "Always looking to milk the system. And you see me, a white woman, so you think I got money."
