According to a statement from the Spring Branch Independent School District, the teacher was put on administrative leave due to "concerns about professional judgment" in class.
"Inappropriate and offensive language was used that the Spring Branch Independent School District does not approve and accept," the district said in a statement to McClatchy News.
The teacher was not identified by the district, although KTRK confirmed that she is white.
Students said the writing task was an introduction to a book the class wanted to read, "Your Eyes Have Watched God," written by Zora Neale Hurston, a black woman, KHOU reported.
"That word didn't have to appear on any screen with children of any color," Mary Daly, whose granddaughter was in the class, told KPRC. “A thinking person is all you have to be. You don't have to be a color to understand that (the teacher) was completely wrong. "
The school district had not seen the lesson plan beforehand and would not have been approved, a school district spokesman told KHOU.
Marcel McClinton, a biracial graduate from the school, said his heart sank when he saw a photo of the job.
"I'm very embarrassed to have her as a teacher and graduate from Stratford High School," McClinton told KTRK. "I have a feeling that black and brown students are not respected or valued in their classroom, and I know that personally because I had them as a teacher for a full year."
The school district is continuing to investigate the incident and said it will "take appropriate action".
