I have romantically goofy memories of my high school freshman and sophomore English teacher. His name was Anthony. I already knew for a fact that he already has a wife-to-be, but I ended up having a terrible crush on him. By the time he moved out of town, I'm sure that he knew that I had feelings for him.
I remember that while I was 16 years old and Anthony was a month away from turning 30, Anthony had all of his students return all of their Japanese chopsticks to him, except ME. Anthony told me that I could keep my chopsticks. That was hauntingly sweet! Yet, I returned the chopsticks to him because I knew that, as mentioned before, he already has a wife-to-be (Teresa) ; I just couldn't give him the satisfaction that I kept the chopsticks, that I kept "his token of his love for me".
Despite the fact that he was a high school professional, Anthony had, to some degree, a liking for me. I was a student and Anthony was a teacher. I am Asian, and Anthony's white. I am a least 14 years younger than Anthony. And yet, we almost fell for each other.
So... YES, I believe that there are such teachers, like Anthony, who DO get fond of their female students.
To my teacher, Anthony, I must have been "a strange Asian beauty", who loves to read the same books as he himself read, like "Amelia Bedilia" or "A jar of dreams". To him, I am " a really nice and smart girl." Above all, he seemed to appreciate me in a way that my own parents never had.
