UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) — A White Pennsylvania teacher who was captured on video calling a Black parent a racist slur following a fender bender has resigned.

The Upper Darby school board voted unanimously Tuesday to accept Drexel Middle School teacher Renee Greeley’s resignation, effective Oct. 17.


Greeley was placed on administrative leave after parent Rasheed Noel posted video Oct. 10 of the minor car accident in the school parking lot. Greeley could be heard saying Noel is “probably on welfare” and should go back to his “Section 8 house.” She later called him the N-word.

Greeley had taught in the district since 2008. Nearly half of the district’s 12,500 students are Black.
