(Olive Branch, MS) A mobile phone video of an Olive Branch, MS teacher is getting a lot of attention.

In the video, a teacher is seen 'twerking' in-front of a class.

Twerking is defined as, "a type of dancing in which an individual dances to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low squatting stance."

Some people have said the video is disturbing.

School administrators say the video is not what it appears.

“The two teachers had good intentions to show how silly students look  when they dance in inappropriate ways.  This video was taken out of context," said Allyson Killough, Olive Branch High Principal.

Killough went on to say, "Our responsibility as teachers is to be a good example and act professionally.  A video clip out of context can have multiple meanings and be misinterpreted”.

Dennis Turner will have more on the video and reaction today on News Channel 3 at Five.
