Wondering what all your opinions are on single pregnant teachers? Would you mind your child being taught by one? would you ask if you didn't know about her martial status? if you were in that position, how would you tell people in a politically correct way?

My thoughts on single parent teachers are: Its their business, what a woman does on her free time is none of my business, what I am to be concerned about is how she acts when she is in the presence of my child and her abilities to teach.

No I would not mind at all...this situation would not make her a bad person, a mean person or a unlikeable person. Remember, none of us are perfect.

No I would not ask, its like me asking you how old you are.....ITS RUDE.

If I were in her position, and someone asked me....I would tell them the truth and that would be all. And not go into detail about the hows, and whys and all that non sense.

Are their really people who make issues of stuff like this?

WHO CARES? Her peronal business has nothing to do with her job, as long as she is a good teacher she is alright with me.

Wow. As Brittanu said, is this actually an issue?

As long as they're a good teacher, they could be black, white, single, married, pregnant, barren, etc. Not to mention what a teacher does in their personal life has nothing to do with their life in the classroom.

In fact one of Clem's preschool teachers (from her 3 y/o class last year) is going to be a single mom (October DD), and her PG didn't affect anything. In fact, I don't even think (to my best knowledge) she missed a day -- which is more than I can say for myself because my MS has kept me on my butt several days!

I might get involved if I found out the the teacher needed some extra help of some kind as a result of being a single parent, but other than that...being a parent is hard work that is to be applauded and encouraged. I don't see why you'd be suspicious or hard on anybody because of single parenthood.

I could care less what she does in her personal life. My only expectations of a teacher is that they are professional in the classroom, and are a good teacher.

I could care less if she was single and pregnant, as long as she taught well.

Personally, I'd say it's none of your d*** business if you did ask me! I had my first baby out of wedlock (by choice), and it was because I wanted a baby. You have no right to ask if she's married, if the pregnancy is planned or unplanned, or any of that. It's her life. She's over 18; she can decide what she's going to do (she'd be free to make THAT choice regarless of her age!!) As long as she isn't in class preaching to the girls and boys to be single parents, you have nothing to gripe about. JMHO.
