It’s alleged that she also shouted racist slurs at pupils, including using the K-word.
Learning and teaching has resumed at the Northriding Secondary School.
MEC Lesufi visited the school on Friday to understand for himself what exactly happened.
After speaking to the concerned parents, Lesufi said that the incident was worrying.
