However, she appeared to be a racist over a minor feud with a black parent, Rasheed Noel, on Tuesday.
Renee Greeley constantly called Noel ‘black’ and expressed African-Americans ‘milk the system’.
“Just because I’m young and I’m black is the reason you would say that”, Noel tells her.
The teacher replies: ‘That’s right because you’re black. You see me, a white woman, and you think I got money”.
The two continue arguing about their respective socio-economic conditions.

Renee Greeley said: “Go back to your welfare and your Section 8 house”, referring to subsidized housing for low-income families.
Noel laughs off and understands that she is ‘mad and nervous’. He warns her that ‘situation could change real quick’.
The teacher brags that she could pay cash to repair the damage to her vehicle, then tells Noel, ‘ah, you go f*** off, n*****’.
The man says, “excuse me?”.
The teacher shoots back, “You heard me”.
The quarrelsome teacher does not back down, telling Noel in an aggressive tone while taking a few steps in his direction, ‘Oh yeah, what are you gonna do about it? Bring it on!’ At that moment, the video cuts off.
SCHOOL AUTHORITIES against Renee Greeley
The Upper Darby School District acted swiftly and placed Renee Greeley depicted on administrative leave, saying in a lengthy statement that the district ‘does not condone or tolerate inappropriate conduct or speech associated with hate, racism, discrimination or intolerance of any kind’.
Upper Darby Superintendent Dan McGarry sent out a statement Thursday evening confirming the incident depicted in Rasheed Noel’s video and announcing the teacher’s suspension pending the outcome of an internal investigation.
‘The protocol for staff on administrative leave is that they are afforded due process and an informal hearing with an administration which took place on October 10th, ‘the spokesperson wrote’. “The process depends on whether the staff member elects to go before the school board for a formal hearing or to arbitration”.
Noel later took to his Facebook page, commending district administrators for their quick action.
Sad for teachers and good people. https://t.co/aB8xibTWYV
