Teacher apologizes for recorded beating of student

Published May 14, 2010

HOUSTON – A Houston teacher caught on a cell phone recording beating a 13-year-old student is apologizing.

Science teacher Sheri Lynn Davis says she's "without excuse" for her attack on Isaiah Reagins at Jamie's House Charter School, a Houston-area alternative school. She says she's "very regretful" and sorry that it happened.

Davis was fired Monday after the recording of the April 29 beating became public. The boy's family says he suffered a black eye and other bruises, and has been taken out of the school. His mother has also filed a lawsuit against Davis and the school.

Davis' attorney Chip Lewis said Friday there was much more to the story about what was going on at the school, but would not give specifics.

The school has said it handled the situation appropriately after learning of it.
