The girl then broke free and sent a punch flying towards the teacher, hitting her on her face. The teacher recoiled, surprised at the blow.
"[Expletive] is you talking about," said the student who attacked.
The attacker said something about "getting smart" with her to the teacher, to which she replied, "I wasn't getting smart with you."
The teacher then walked toward the student who just hit her. The student was walking backward out of the classroom. As other students react with an outcry of disbelief, the clip abruptly ended.

"Ensuring a safe teaching and learning environment for our students and staff is paramount to City Schools. Upon reviewing the incident, school administrators will apply disciplinary action in accordance with the Baltimore City Public Schools' Code of Conduct."
