Upper Darby teacher accused in racially-charged altercation resigns

A Drexel Hill Middle School teacher has resigned after she was allegedly involved in a racially-charged exchange with a parent in the school parking lot earlier this month. On Tuesday night, the school board accepted her resignation. 

The teacher at Drexel Hill Middle School, identified as Renee Greeley, was previously placed on administrative leave following a dispute with a parent after a minor fender-bender in the school’s parking lot on Oct. 10. The exchange was captured on video.

During the initial exchange, the father and teacher went back and forth verbally; however, the argument escalated when the teacher allegedly called the father a racial slur.
