My bestfriend is my teacher. xD Do you think that is weird? - April 24th 2009, 07:00 AM

Haha as loserish as that sounds he truely is the greatest guy i have ever met. He inspired me to play guitar (he is awesome at guitar, better than many famous gitarists), he's passionate about his job, he is the FUNNIEST person i have ever met, he treats me like a person, an adult and not just another kid, he listens and talks to me. i tell him everything lol. and he tells me stuff too, and lastly he saved my life. I am forever greatful for everything he has done and i can't imagine school without him. He is one of my bestfriends and always will be. xD

ps. i don't care what anyone else thinks eg "ah you loser, frieds with the teacher nerr nerr" whatever, if anyone knew him like i did they wouldn't see it as such a surprise.

No one called you a loser; you seem to be very defense about this topic. I see no problem with a student being friends with a teacher. One of my best friends was my art teacher from high school. When it is just friendship, then there is nothing wrong about that. Having adult friends is nothing to be ashamed about. It can be quite healthy to get another perspective about life from someone beside your parents. I see nothing wrong, or lame about this. Just relax; we are not going to judge you.

I feel 100% more comfortable with one or two of my teachers over all of my friends put together. I don't think it's weird at all. There's a lot of things i'd talk to about to my teachers rather than my parents, I could go so far to say the same thing, really

I think one of the reasons I feel so close to a couple of my teachers is because they see my mistakes everyday, and don't yell, judge, or stop talking to me for it. Our swim coach is one of the 'kids' and comes out to eat with us and will drive us home and even came swim suit shopping with us :P

My supervising teacher of 5 years was the father I never had. <3
He was my best friend and he told me I was his.
He retired last year.
Contact one another through e-mail but our letters seem few and far between.
His wife is extraordinarily jealous of me and of the relationship that we have.
They share an account. E-mails get "lost." You get the idea.
But I don't think you're weird at all.
It's important, in my opinion, we have an authority figure in our lives (other than our parents) that we can count on, trust and talk to.
