Warrant out for Waco ISD teacher's arrest

by John Cuoco

WACO- An arrest warrant has been issued for a Waco ISD teacher after she allegedly slapped a special needs student in her class.

Police informed Waco ISD that the teacher, Katheryn Shurley, is charged with injury to a child.

Shurley admitted to slapping the child three times in class at Meadowbrook Elementary.

A week and half ago News Channel 25 broke this story after the child was slapped on March 2, 2010.

After the incident, Shurley was immediately removed from the classroom and placed on indefinite suspension.

According to Waco ISD, she is expected to turn herself in this week.

The child's mother, Jennie McCollaum,  told News Channel 25 her 6 year old son Bryan came home from school with a bruise on his face.

According to McCollaum, Bryan had an outburst in class and spit in a teacher's face, and that's when he was slapped.
