I have always heard about teachers having sexual relations with students (teens) but I had neva actually witnessed it. I had saw it on the news and heard it from the people I passed but again I had neva saw it. Maybe, I was too drown into myself to actually ever believe it. Whateva it was, it stopped me from seeing what was really under my nose the whole time.......the truth. The truth that any adult can be drown into something so vernable and percious as a teenager's virginity that it's awful. I had a fourth grade teacher that was very young to be teaching. He started teaching right out of college. He was very nice but I felt that he was too friendly towards girls. Well, one girl in particular and I will let her be nameless. He would let her talk and curse us out while he sat at his desk. He let her sit on his lap. He even kissed her on the cheeks. While he looked at us he always had his REAL attention on the same girl. I grew very jealous of this. I wondered why she got to have all the fun and we didn't? I was very weary of this and I let it be known. I would beat the girl up and let her leave with bruises. I didn't care. I wanted her to know that she didn't own nothing but the new teacher that I really didn't care for. (Hey, I was in 4th grade I didn't know any bettah.) Anyway, after I left my elementary school I let that go. He was out of my life and so was she. My middle school and some of my high school years were rid of all the drama that came out of this until.........the teacher that I had in fourth grade came to my school to teach football. He's 30 now. Other than a quick hello and goodbye passing him in the hallway I thought no more of him. I was very watchful of him because he would look at me in the hallways when I had on my skirts as well as the other girls. He was constantly carrying on conversations with high school girls. I wondered why is he talking to them when he should have no relationship with them because he coachs the boy's football? That thought like others just came and went and I thought no more of it. I just laughed and went on. After a while, I got my nerve up and I started playing and talking with him like the rest of the girls. After all, he was harmful right? WRONG!!!!!!! I found out this week that he was fired and went to jail for sleeping with a high school girl. (FYI: She was one of the girls that had a reputation for doing nasty things and for wearing short dresses.) Her mother got hold of it that they were doing each other and cursed the principal out. He in change called the sheriffs and they dragged him off school property and into jail. I don't know if he got any time for this but I'm sure he did. Not only this, but he got a young teaher preagnant too. She is 6 months and her baby is due in June. This situation made me wonder what if he did something to the girl that was in my fourth grade class? Did I beat her up for nothing when I should have been talking to her? I'm sure what will become of this drama but I'm sure there will be no happy ending. After all, he brought this on himself. He knew the consequences when he fooled with the girl. I want to get some feedback on this situation and see what you think about it. Do you think the high school girl brought this on herself? Why do you think he had sex with a high schooler? Could this be a illness? Do you think he should be charged with statutory rape? What do you think? Because to be honest, I'm just confused.
