Cy-Fair ISD students gather around the teacher who is accused of putting the child in the trunk of a car at the COVID testing site

While a teacher from the Houston area was exposed to some heat after accused of sticking her child in the trunk of her car at a COVID-19 testing center, some students come to her defense.

Posters and letters covered Sarah Beam’s home in Jersey Village on Tuesday, mostly from students offering love messages and support.

Beam, 41, made nationwide headlines after she was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of endangering a child after authorities said she put her COVID-19 infected child in the trunk of a vehicle that she was taking to a testing site Harris County drove.

Prosecutors have alleged that Beam was waiting in line at the Pridgeon Stadium proving ground on Jan. 3 when she told a Cy Fair ITS official that her 13-year-old son was in the trunk of her car to prevent that they are the virus. The officer told Beam that their child would not have a COVID test until they were moved to the back seat.

Beam, who at one point worked as an English teacher at Cypress Falls High School, according to district records, was quick to receive criticism from parents and even a neighbor who told KPRC that the accusation of hearing that she was a teacher was still the allegation makes more worrying.

“That makes it worse because she’s supposed to take care of other people’s children, and if she did that to her own child, what would she do to someone else’s child?” said the neighbor to the television station.

The students’ posters share a different perspective.

“Mrs. Beam, you’ve changed my life in ways you can’t imagine (d), ”read a signed poster from the 2014 class.“ Without you, I wouldn’t be where I am! You made me get better and keep trying even if we want to give up. You showed me support when I needed it most, so we will do the same with you. Your students will be close to you no matter what. “

“You can count on us,” said another poster on her sliding glass door.

Beam has now deposited a $ 1,500 bond. She could not be reached for comment.

The teenager was not injured in the incident, Cy-Fair ISD spokeswoman Leslie Francis said in a statement to the Houston Chronicle on Friday. She said that Beam recently worked as a teacher in her district but is currently on administrative leave.
