I know that as a teacher you're not supposed to have favorites however, I have a class of sweet, sweet children and they're pretty darn close to being my favorites. Every day before class they'll all come and find me and say, "Come on teacher. Let's go to class". Little Emily will even grab my hand and say, "My best friend Tawny teacher".
The other day we were sitting in class and one of them decided to declare their adoration for me.
Lucia: Teacher, I love you.
Emily: Tawny teacher, I love you and you love me.
Julie: Teacher, I really really love you.
Peter: Teacher, I like... gorillas.
