OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -- A Shawnee Mission School District teacher resigned Monday evening during the board of education meeting.

Teacher Amanda Coffman spoke during the public comment portion of the meeting.

It was the first meeting after the board of education approved a three-year contract following a contentious negotiation period.

"There will be no clarifying questions," Coffman said. "I don't answer to you anymore."

The contract includes a basis salary increase of 1 percent for 2019-20, 1.25 percent for 2020-2021 and 1.5 percent for 2021-2022.
