Awkward moment with former student


I have no time for a proper post on the next Pride event I attended as it's been an exceedingly busy week.  My grade 12s wrote their 2.5 hour exam yesterday and all the marks and report cards need to submitted first thing tomorrow.  As well, the drama continues as my wife and I debate the share we`ll be paying for the kids`s drivers`insurance. 

As well, a young woman in my grade class suffered a "meltdown" and threatened me in class (not physically) so I kicked her out. This generated parental phone calls to our administrators and a summons to the office for me.  I just don't need this!

The administrators were very understanding and the student has been pulled from my class but this incident has generated a lot of work for me as "damage control" which must be submitted to the office tomorrow morning.

Now to the awkward moment:

I was approached by a former student at a Pride event yesterday evening.  I was in a semi-public location in clear view of other volunteers, some out teacher colleagues and some GSA kids, presently students at my school.

Horny Former Student had been in several of my high school classes in the late 90s and is now 34 year old.  He was short, tubby, obviously gay but kind of cute.   After a few drinks (liquid courage) he came bearing down on me.

Mr. _ _ _ _ _ !!  I had the biggest crush on you!    I thought of you when I jerked off.  
I did that for years!
 
Wow!  Awkward!!  I just wish there's been a video camera running to record my reaction....I hardly knew how to respond!   There's much more to the story, actually, but I'll save that for my next post

  1. Wish he was a little be cooler about it and since we're wishing a little bit hotter. I know this wasn't the first time a student has revealed a crush on you but was it the first from a guy? I'm sure this happens to all good looking teaches, male and female, from both opposite and same sexes.

    I look forward to the whole story.

    "Hey teach. I have that homework for you I never handed in. When do you want me to give it to you? And where?"

    1. I loved your last quote; very funny! Student crushes are an occupational hazard of being teacher, especially ones in their 20s. Young male teachers in particular are pursued aggressively by grade 10 girls and need to be very careful to maintain professional boundaries.

      I've had many students with crushes on me but very have been few female students; the vast majority have been guys. I guess they always could sniff out my gayness even before I knew it myself.

      None of my crushes were as blatant as this young man althought I've been told "You're hot!" once or twice by high-school senior male students. Mainly they just say that they like what I'm wearing, be it shoes, jeans or T-shirt.

      I've been asked out on dates or to parties by grade 10 and 11 boys but most are too shy to vocalize their feelings. They just moon about me, lock eyes, blush and stammer awkwardly or flirt shamelessly. I humour them and admire them for their courage and sometimes flirt back at them.

  2. I guess it can be a bit disconcerting, but flattering at the same time. (But, as one who promotes openness about jerking off, I'll give him kudos for being open about it.)

    1. I was flattered, actually. I only wish he was closer to my age (or even 40), taller and slimmer!

  3. Wow, cum shots! You're branching out. I have former students from my university teaching days who are gay and several of them and I have met in the years following my retirement. We've had some fun comparing notes on which (or both) of us had the hots for the other, but I knew that way lay unemployment. In one case where it was both of us, however, the passing of years led to a perfectly delightful afternoon. So nice to know I can still ignite the flame in a young'un!

    1. Well, the cum shots matched the 'jerking off' story. You mean that you'd be fired for hooking up with a former student?

      Even here, teachers and former can have a relationship (and sex) if: (1) The student is an adult and (2) the student has been away from the school or the professional teacher relationship for a full year with no contact at all.

    2. No, not former but when they were undergrads. That's why the delayed consummation ten years after his graduation was such a nice event -- we FINALLY got to do what we had both wanted but knew was to dangerous at the time. And we both broke up laughing when we compared notes and found out we both had another faculty member in common.

      It's a bit different when it comes to faculty and graduate or doctoral students, who may well be in their 30s and 40s, even though the "power" issue would remain. A colleague of mine had an affair with a female grad student, it was generally known, and if there was any negative repercussion I wasn't aware. Eventually they married.
