A Spanish teacher has been placed on leave in Flemming County for showing a sexually suggestive video to children in her class. 

In the video, people are shown dressed up in animal costumes acting out sexually suggestive acts. 

It was shown at E.P Ward and Ewing Elementary Schools, and reportedly to fourth graders, according to WLEX.

"There is no reason it should have been shown. Not to elementary kids or to any kids for that matter," parent Johnica McDaniel told WLEX.

The district said the teacher has worked there for years, but they don't know why she showed the video.

The superintendent released a statement which reads in part, "I was made aware of an inappropriate video that was shown in several Spanish classrooms. To be clear, this YouTube video was neither part of the Fleming County Schools' Spanish curriculum nor approved by school or district administration to be used in classrooms or shared with students."

The video was posted on YouTube in 2008 and in the description states it's rated R.

The teacher is on leave pending review.
