Again, school had just ended for the day. I was sitting at my desk preparing for a presentation the next day. It was a warm early-summer day, so the door and windows were wide open.
One of my 1st year boys runs up to the door and yells “Hello!”
I respond with “Hello!”
Then a few more run up.
“Ohhhh, Helloooo Teacher!”, someone cheers.
One of them starts winking.
“Teacher, I love you!”, someone shouts.
Another blows me a kiss.
“No, I love you!”, someone else tries to one-up him.
Pretty soon there’s a fan club-like gathering of 12 year-olds outside the door and I had to shoo them away…
Yep. That happened.
