“I’m about to start kicking some serious ass – do you hear me?!” she then threatened.

“I’m ready to get off this fucking bus right now and let you go home,” she said. “How much more do you think anybody can damn take?

Cleveland station WKYC reported that school officials were investigating the “unacceptable” incident.
The Post has reached out to district officials for comment.
Amherst Superintendent Mike Molnar told the outlet that he sent the following letter to parents across the district:
Dear Amherst Parents,
Tonight I received a video circulating on social media of a bus driver using inappropriate and offensive language towards students. The behavior of the bus driver is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. I have accepted the resignation of the bus driver with immediate effect and the incident will be fully investigated. The bus driver’s actions do not represent the values and standards we uphold as a district and do not reflect our commitment to providing a safe, caring, and compassionate educational environment.
Going forward, our transportation department will revise its procedures to ensure we are handling situations appropriately for the safety of our students. The district will also continue to support our bus drivers with appropriate training and professional development.
As Superintendent, I will continue to focus my energy and efforts on creating a positive and safe environment for all students and staff. I believe that open communication and constructive feedback from our community helps us create a stronger and more supportive environment. THANKS.

“If I was her boss she would get a raise,” said another.
