One of my students told me today that she is pregnant. I am heartbroken for her. She is amazingly smart and very talented, active in athletics and other extra-curriculars, and has a tremendous amount of potential. I know that she can be successful even with a baby, but I also know that it's going to be so difficult for her. I will never understand why teenagers make choices that result in pregnancy. Seriously. It's so easy to prevent. I am feeling very sad tonight.
