We have to stand in the doorway every morning and urge the students to get to class on time. You will not believe the number of bellies I see turning the corner before the body (or maybe you will). Teenage pregnancy is so prevalent now and it’s definitely difficult when it’s one of your students. Last week, one of my students told me she had to go on bed rest. I believe in following the doctor’s orders, but my first mind went to her grades. She is a very intelligent young lady and I would hate to see this semester’s work be for nothing. I had to tell her to make sure she speak with her counselor so they can work out something with her teachings, that maybe homebound can be an option. We’ve spoken about various plans and avenues she can take once she graduate that will help keep her on track for her future goals. I’m just hoping the support she says is there, truly is.
