GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. -- A Guilford County Schools teacher has resigned after using inappropriate language in the classroom.
The school system said the Northeast Middle teacher used inappropriate language while talking with a 12-year-old student.
Eric Banks worked as a Career and Technical Education Teacher at the middle school.
Banks had been with the school system since 2013.
WFMY News 2 spoke with the student's mother who asked that we not release her name, to protect the student.
We can't share what she says her son told her because it's too lewd.
When asked about what happened she told WFMY, "It was breathtaking. I had to get him to repeat it several times. I couldn't believe a teacher said this.
He walked out of the classroom and he and some other kids went to the principal's office to report it."
Guilford County Schools released the following statement:
"It is extremely disappointing anytime we hear an employee acted unprofessionally in front of students. We expect our employees to treat students with nothing but respect, and know the vast majority do so every day. In order to help teachers handle stressful classroom situations GCS offers training on classroom management."
