Sheri Lynn Davis, the Houston teacher, who got taped beating the crap out of one of her students says she’s sorry. But this isn’t the first time she went psycho. Pop the hood.
The Associated Press has her apology and “without excuse” excuse.
A teacher who was recorded on cell phone video beating a student apologized Friday, saying she was “without excuse” for the attack on the 13-year-old.
Science teacher Sheri Lynn Davis, who was fired by the charter school this week over the attack, said she regrets what happened and would act much differently if given the opportunity.
“I apologize for the pain that the result of this situation has brought,” she said in a brief appearance at her lawyer’s office. “I apologize for this particular incident.”
Davis took no questions about her attack on Isaiah Reagins at Jamie’s House Charter School, a Houston-area alternative school.
Reagins suffered a black eye and other bruises in the attack. His mother, Alesha Johnson, filed a lawsuit Thursday against Davis and the school.
Davis’ attorney, Chip Lewis, said he believed the lawsuit would bring to light problems at the school that led to the confrontation. He said she was forced to become “not only an educator but also a bouncer, an enforcement officer.”
Davis is also in trouble for another incident.
Court records show Davis, who has sons aged 14 and 4, is facing an unrelated criminal charge in which she is accused of slashing the tires of another woman’s car with a knife in January 2009.
