Middle school teacher gets pregnant after sleeping with her student
HOUSTON, Texas — A middle school teacher is being accused of having an affair with a 13-year-old student, who got her pregnant.
Alexandria Vera, 24, turned herself in on Wednesday after a warrant was issued for her arrest. She was charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child and released on $100,000 bail, the New York Post reported.
Vera met and fell in love with the boy last summer at Stovall Middle School in Houston, she said.
Students at Stovall Middle School became aware of the relationship and Vera was introduced to the boy's parents as his girlfriend at a parent teach conference, according to the Post.
The school district put Vera on leave and stated that, "the safety and security of Aldine ISD's students and staff remains a priority of the school district."
