CHICAGO -- A South Side teacher is out of job after cursing at a student.

The incident was recorded on cell phone video.

The teacher, Joann Finley, says it's not the first time that a student has harassed her at Prologue Winnie Mandela Alternative School. She says the student ignored her instructions and kept cursing at her.

She says she went to the school disciplinarian twice about him that day  and no one addressed the issue.

CPS issued a letter to parents saying:

The emotional and physical safety of all students is one of the utmost priorities of Chicago Public Schools. It is difficult and disappointing to watch what transpired at Prologue Winnie Mandela.

CPS says the teacher is an employee of the school and not CPS.
