13 and Pregnant

Second Edition of Crazy School Stories:  no names have been used to protect privacy:) 

The 13 and pregnant edition 

See the first edition crazy mama’s here

1. My first year teaching I had a freshman class. My first student to get pregnant was in this class. She had gotten pregnant that summer. She was 13.

2. That same year another one of my students pretended to be pregnant because her boyfriend broke up with her. He found out she had lied. They got into a big fight in front of my room. He yelled at her “I wish you had been pregnant, I could have killed you and the baby”

3. A couple years later a found out that one of my students hid a pregnancy and gave the baby to her aunt to raise as her own. The next year she got pregnant with twins she was a senior that year.

4. One student became pregnant for her father. He was arrested. She went crazy because she was in love with him. They “forced” her to get an abortion.

5. One student had to be sent to another school because even though she was pregnant she kept getting into very serious fights. They were afraid for the baby, well the school was, not the people she fought.

6. All in all I have taught ten pregnant teenagers so far. That does not include the boys who had kids because they could hide that. This is only my fourth year teaching. That abstinence only training is working!

  1. I have worked in Chicago Public High Schools for the last 5 school years… I have seen 20 out of 80 freshman girls walk into the school pregnant, a girl that was in the 11th grade pregnant with her THIRD child (no twins), and boys that have gotten sisters pregnant. I have no idea what is going on today.

    • My students told me many reasons. One was the 800 check from the government each month. Two was all their friends had them. Three was I just wanted someone to love.I don’t think that is the case.
      After I talked to them I found that most were on the pill and using it incorrectly. They thought if they missed a week they could take it all in one day and be ok. But I am bound by law not to discuss those things with them here, so I couldnt even tell them they were taking it wrong.
      Holy shit on the sibling thing damn

  2. It’s sad when children have children. Ten in four years? Scary and very, very sad.

    I’m curious, what subject(s) do you teach? Nothing to do with the post, just curious. You should be commended for the work you do regardless.
