A video shot by one of the stunned students in the classroom at Austin Independent School District's Bowie High School shows the fill-in teacher seated behind a desk surrounded by disco lights and laughter, kicking off the Britney Spears classic while struggling to hit the notes.

“I’ve heard worse Britney Spears covers, but the lights are a bit much, ”a spokesperson for the school district said in a statement.

Apparently treating his job as a shaper of young minds like his own Idol audition, the unidentified man was reportedly asked to leave for not following best practices, found employment at another school, and was invited to leave campus again after performing an additional ditty.

You're dangerous, I'm loving it.
