Morgantown, W.Va. (AP) -- A Morgantown High School teacher is on administrative leave after a Myspace video showed her dancing and behaving strangely in a classroom.

A hearing will be scheduled to let Lynn Ann Clawges explain herself.

Monongalia County Schools Superintendent Frank Devono said Thursday he was concerned by Clawges' conduct.

He wouldn't comment further Friday, saying it's a personnel matter that's under investigation.

Students say Clawges was removed from a freshman history class Monday after they went to administrators.

Clawges' union, the American Federation of Teachers-West Virginia, did not immediately return a telephone message.

A message left for a LynnAnn Clawges in Morgantown was not immediately returned.
