Alexandria was impregnated by her 13-year-old student
A former Houston middle school teacher has been arrested after she admitted to investigators that she was in love with one of her students and had sex with him “on almost a daily basis” starting when he was just 13 years old.
The boy allegedly stayed the night at Vera’s house frequently and they would have sex with each other nearly every day, according to court documents.
Neighbors told the Houston Chronicle that Vera would introduce him as her little brother when they saw him with her at the house.
When an investigator with the school district’s police department confronted her about the relationship, she told officials the two were in love and the boy’s parents were accepting of their relationship.

Alexandria Vera, 24, turned herself in on charges that she sexually abused the boy, who is now 14, while carrying on a relationship with him for nearly five months. Vera admitted to investigators that she became pregnant during the fling, according to court documents obtained by the Houston Chronicle.
“I have chills just because of this, just think that the teacher would even do something like this,” Mary Claycomb, a parent at the boy’s school, told ABC 13.
Vera posted $100,000 bond and repeatedly ignored reporters’ questions as she left the Montgomery County courthouse on Wednesday afternoon. Aldine ISD issued the following statement: “Aldine ISD has been made aware that charges have been filed against a former Stovall Middle School teacher involved in inappropriate behavior with a male student. When the allegation was made in April, the teacher was immediately removed from the school and placed on administrative leave. Aldine ISD Police investigated the incident and turned their findings over to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The safety and security of Aldine ISD’s students and staff remains a priority of the school district.”
