A Houston teacher has been fired from her position at a school for special education students after she was caught on video viciously beating a 13-year-old student.

Sherri Davis, 40, was terminated after school officials viewed the cell phone video of the assault which took place at Jamie's House Charter School in Houston.

The boy, who has a history of disciplinary problems, had allegedly punched a female student in the class. Other teachers stood by and watched while Davis dished out punishment to the teenager by slapping, punching, kicking and slamming his head against a wall.

But there's a fine line between discipline and an all out assault, and this teacher should have known better.

    While I understand the pressures teachers endure everyday with children, especially children with behavioral problems, this is crazy. She snapped. If it gets to this point, it's time to hang in up and go into another professional. This is uncalled for and I'm sure that child's parents are going to sue.

    One of my classmates was a former teacher and he was fired in DC because he "touched" a student after they swung on him twice and missed. He said the third swing he caught the students arm and the student said you are in trouble now cause you touched me and sure enough he said he was fired the same day cause the policy is you can't touch students. He worked at a private school go figure :shrug:

    Shoutout to ALL the FAB underpaid, hardworking, dedicated teachers :clap:

    What kind of teacher was/is she? A Teachers Aide a Classroom Teacher for the day? She looks nothing like a teacher with her (backing him into a corner)wrestling moves.

  • http://myspace.com/necee518 yvonne79

    Behavorial issues or not, there is nothing a child can possibly do to warrant this type of treatment. Honestly, there isn't any logical explanation for this type of behavior from a special needs teacher. This is beyond ridiculous!!!

  • http://oneperfectassistant.com ggouch

    Is it me? It looks like she was just playing...perhaps? It looks as if it was intended to be more on the joke side of a lesson. More to embarrass him.. I didn't really see any punching and kicking..I am goign to review it again

  • pinksghetti

    That's crazy. Some people shouldn't be teachers. Are you sure she's a teacher because she was dressed so unproffessional, like a student (jeans, t-shirt, pants hanging almost on the ground). On the other hand I bet he won't be a discipline problem for no other teacher in the future.

  • qtipthecat

    Thats crazy. Obviously she needed to find a new occupation. I know I couldn't be a teacher, because I don't have the patience. I guess she didn't either.

  • pointhimout

    teaching as a profession isn't for everybody. im not saying she's right or wrong, considering we didn't see everything that lead up to his ass whoopin. you've got to have patience and tolerance like no other when teaching because ur dealing with the students, and the parents. I have many friends that teach and all say the parents are worse than the kids.

    @pinksghetti

    I bet he won’t be a discipline problem for no other teacher in the future.

    Sheesh, my grammar today *I don't think beating him is going to help* and may I add, that wasn't the teacher's place to put her hands on someone else's child. JMO.

  • http://myspace.com/necee518 yvonne79

    @Daisy: Now that is some BS!! Your friend got fired for blocking a shot??? It's not like he slapped the taste out of some kids' mouth for the feeble attempt of trying to hit him. Teacher go through so much mess!!

    Teachers are the most underpaid group of people next to police officers and military personnel (as far as I'm concerned). Teachers have to put up with parents who send their children to school ill prepared for learning. Parents who show absolutely no interest in their children. Parents who don't assist with homework. Parents that don't show up for the parent/teacher conferences or PTA meetings, etc. But let those same kids say the teacher put their hands on them and the parents are ready to come up to the school acting a damn fool, trying to fight someone. It's ridiculous!

    If this child has behavorial issues before, why wasn't he moved to someone's class you was better equipped to deal with him? Why were other adults just standing there watching the teacher get in that butt? Who watching the other teachers' class while they are witnessing this tomfoolery? Soooo many questions?

  • Pingback: Teacher woops some student ass…ROFL [Video] : Defglam()

  • Daisy

    @yvonne yep he grabbed her wrist/arm on her third swing and that's all she wrote. I guess private schools have their own rules and that was one of them no touching a student period. I know in high school they changed the rule that even if you were defending yourself both students wld be suspended for fighting even if you had a witness prove that Pookie hit you 2-3x before u finally hit them back. They had zero tolerance when it came to fighting which wasn't fair to me.

    I agree about some parents being as bad as their kids at times sadly.

    I didn't watch the video

  • http://oneperfectassistant.com ggouch

    I reviewed it again. It may have gone to far from a parent perspective. But I don't get from the video that she intended anything more than to humorsly dish out a lesson on Boy's hitting Girls. That would prob answer why other teachers didn't intervien. It does not look like a beat down

    Ok, at first, I THOUGHT she was just playing. Trying to show him up for actin a fool. But then, the hits to the head looked sorta real.

    I can't lie, some students do need their a**es whooped, but the teacher really had no right putting her hands on him. The teacher better hope that this kid's parents don't come after him or her.

    I definitely don't think she should have hit him that's why I said that it was crazy but being a teacher isn't a joke these days with so many kids that have issues and he allegedly punched a girl in the face. I'm not even sure I believe the video is of the teacher because she is dressed like a teenager and she's supposed to be 40. This video needs more people. But having said all that if that was my kid I be mad at the teacher and want her fired too if she hit him.

    Hello All. I'm with Daisy! Another shout out to teachers, social workers, police officers, fireman and all other social service jobs! Many of our children act like heathens and are off the chain. Someone needs to reel 'em in. When I was in the 2nd grade, ions ago, my mean-ass teacher used a thick paddle to hit us with in our palms. If you snatch yo hand back, you got another lick. Well, I got ONE lick and childddddddddddd, it lasted me til I was a senior in high school. Didn't EVER give any other teacher a problem. And if I remember correctly, I got it again when I got home. My Momma, God rest her soul, didn't play that crap. She had 5 children to raise and a mean husband to deal with, and you act up in school, yo ass was hers! That is all. Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    I'm not a teacher but always wanted to be. Now I'm scared because these kids have lost their mind. We are all teachers though. Parents need to start being teachers and examples towards their kids. This is getting to out of hand. I agree w/ comment 20. Parents send their kids to school tired, hungry and home work not done and wonders why Ray Ray can't get passed the 4th grade. SMH.

  • Shauny

    First off, hey yall

    OK I saw this video a couple of times and I don't know what yall was looking at but those were not play taps she was banging his damn head into the wall and throwing haymakers. Who does that when they're playing?

    I saw a few articles (googled this incident) and the girls who taped this video said that her sister was teaching another girl some dance moves and the boy got up mocking the moves dancing with them. She said the teacher came in the room and said, "You wanna hit on girls" and went to town on him. The other kids said they didn't know what she was talking about because he hadn't hit anyone and thought she was joking at first until she starting fvcking him up. So who's telling the truth? Even the yt superintendent and principle said that he didn't hit anyone on tv.

    She looks like she could be best friends with Snoop from The Wire and is a damn teacher. Don't excuse this shyt.

    Hell yeah bad ass kids need their a$$ kicked by teachers. I seen kids in general education get up in the principals and teachers face.

    These kids have been off the hook for some time now. I know someone who was a hall monitor. These kids would argue and you can't hit them but you can say things to them. Some kids turned into "stalkers" and knew where this person lived. This person had to put retraining orders on some of them. It's ok this person got the last laugh, and turned in to a police officer and worked in the same schools with the bad azz kids had to take to court. :lol: You are right, if parents don't start taking control of their kids you really don't want the cops to do your job. They are over worked and underpaid.

  • KrayZKat

    The key word here is PARENT. I'm with PAHairston. Back in the day, kids were paddled in the principal's office. Schools didn't take any mess out of kids, and we dare not act up in school because we all knew once we got home there was going to be hell to pay; however, the way this teacher was fighting this child was dead wrong. If you can't deal with bad kids, don't become a teacher. Many parents are really failing their children.

  • Ashley

    This woman needs to go straight to jail. No sympathy. This is not her child and beating him the way she did was just wrong. Okay, if he hit a girl...send his ass to the office and contact his mother. She has NO right as an adult to treat someone elses child like this. She is just pure trash.

    In my day teachers would paddle kids right in the room, no need to send them to the principal's office. I knew long ago that I did not want to be paddled in front of my peers. I saw many kids get paddled and I did not go to Catholic School. :lol: It was scared enough to watch a peer get paddled, I never wanted it to be me.

    Some of these kids behavioral problems don't have real behavioral problems, some of them just needed discipline and structure in their home/family lives from a young age.

    I feel sorry for most teachers these days because they're the ones forced to deal with these demonic children, while trying to teach the other normal kids for how many hours in a day... psssh couldn't be me! I'd demand (and use) a stun gun in the classroom if I were a teacher.

  • KrayZKat

    @Anna, I hear ya! I guess my school in L.A. spared us the embarrassment of being paddled in front of our peers. They wanted to make examples out of them. That would've cured me too, Anna.

  • Daisy

    I got a spanking/paddling the 1st day of school cause I told the teacher I didnt have to stand where she told me to in line. My elementary school was right across the street from my gmas house so she beat me again once I came home with a note from the teacher saying what happened :D I never hit a teacher or thought about doing such but I was the type to speak my mind and tell them to call my mama and would ask if they needed me to dial :coffee:

  • Ms.Everything

    I wish a teacher would beat my child in class. He clearly needed restraining which is where the other teachers should've stepped up and assisted but to beat the child with a shoe? I hope his parents get him help which is needed but I hope the teacher as well as those teachers who stood around watching like kids are disciplined as well

  • Ms.Everything

    Y'all probably all gone by now but I just read all the comments and I went to a school where they could pop you on the butt or hand with a ruler if you got out of line and I agree that a lot of these kids today are like walking demons but there's a difference between discipline and beating. I can't see the video but from the way y'all are describing it that sounds like she beat him like he was a regular dude off the street and that's just not right. I won't beat my own kids like that. I also agree that a lot of parents are letting tv, society and the streets raise their kids and not teaching them to respect other kids, adults, authority or themselves and the parents are also setting bad examples by letting their children see them act a fool but still she took it too far and those teachers standing around should've intervened from the beginning. If he hit that girl and was fighting back, restrain him and remove him from the situation while the parents are called but you don't beat a child in front of his peers and think its okay

  • Anna

    There is a thin line between spanking/whooping/paddling and abuse. If you have a problem with my child, call me. Plain and simple. I don't abuse my kids so what gives anyone the right to?

  • Redeemed777

    I wonder how many of YALL believe that your child/children are not apart of the many children who make it their daily routine to act up in school?

    Just because a teacher might not report it, does not mean your child/children are innocent.

    Some parents are straight DRAMA queens/kings, and they and their child/children are always at the scene of drama. They are either part of the drama OR they INSTIGATED the drama.

    Those are the parents that cry wolf, even when their child/children are the one at fault.

    They don't learn tho, till those cops put the beat down on their child/children, OR worse case scenario KILL the child/children.

    YALL better make sure the above does not describe you.

  • Avanti

    As Ocho Cinco would say on Twitter... WAMW -- I wish a mofo would put their hands on my child like that! There is NO reason & those actions could lead a parent to physical retaliation. Someone above said that they didn't see any real punches... I did! I saw a horrible kick, a horrible punch (I think it was the 3rd swing), and her bashing his head into the wall! What more do you need? She needs to be arrested & it shouldn't have taken this long to decide that.

  • Redeemed777

    ^^^^^ So the question remains....what are you as a parent prepared to do when the cops put the beat down on your child?

    You do realize that the cop beat is worst than this video right?

  • Redeemed777

    cop beat down

  • DeliciousOne

    It looks like a playfight to me.

  • LaTechGrad02

    @Redeemed777 preach! My mom is a principal and so many parents come to the school cutting up worse than the students. She's had to call the police on one mother for trying to jump on a student. Two students have falsely accused a coach of molesting them. SMH. My mom has to play counselor to the parents and the students most days. Anyways, teachers really deserve medals for the nonsense that they put up with on a daily basis. They're underpaid and unappreciated in most school districts. I'm not saying there aren't any bad teachers because there are and you find that in any profession but most teachers are hardworking, compassionate people who do their job because they love making a difference in a child's life.

  • VIBABY

    If that is a teacher she needed to be fired. I wish a mofo would put hands on my child.

  • LaTechGrad02

    Is anyone tuning in to watch TI on Larry King Live tonight?

  • Redeemed777

    The "Mofo" that yall keep referring to could be the POLICE.

    So I ask again....what will you do when the cops 'put their hands on' your child/children??

    Keep in mind that some cops have tasered young children before and still got away with it.

    WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN THE COPS BEAT UP YOUR CHILD????

    unfortunately, she has lost her job and will probably go to jail for it, ruining her teaching career. she was wrong; it was not her place but we can't review this angel's disciplinary history because it's private. some of these teachers lose their jobs just for defending themselves. i thank God for the few teachers we have left because i could never be one.

    Well I am a teacher so I feel free to comment. Until one walks in a teachers shoes, please reserve your comment. Teachers are human and when they hand out certifications they don't give super powers with them. Teachers get very little respect from kids and even less from parents. No one knows how many times that kid was reported to administration and nothing was done about it. Teachers don't have the support they should. I have a student that I am fighting to have removed from my class. He said he hates me and wishes I was dead. What happens when he decides to make his wish come true? Why should I have to fight to have him removed? I've said I don't feel safe that should be enough. But it's not. People don't see that side of teaching. People think, "oh, they are kids." Well they forget that they are kids and try to get in a teacher's face as an adult, but when they are treated like the adult they are acting like, teachers are wrong.
