when they saw something was bothering me, theyd ask if i was ok. and they wouldnt be like- you dont have to say anything if you dont want to, but how is your life? is your fmily doing ok? when they say that, first of all, they are forcing me to spill my life story, second, they give the impression that they dont want to hear what youre going through, they just want your parents to tip them well.August 11, 2013 11:47 pm at 11:47 pm #970933sharpMember

I had a rebbe in elementary school that I never saw get angry. (When he had to he would put on a really good act) and then was completely calm immediately afterwards.) this was just one of his great qualities. He incidently was the only rebbe I remember slapping me (out of love, which I was able to recognize).August 13, 2013 6:18 pm at 6:18 pm #970940stanleycParticipant

My favorite teacher from high school is my friend now. She wasn’t at the time, but we stayed in touch after I graduated and she told me that since I wasn’t her student anymore, I could call her by her first name. We are very close now.August 13, 2013 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #970943

I don’t believe it. A teacher cannot have unconditional love for a student that they teach for a year or two.August 14, 2013 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #970946Torah613TorahParticipant

Can a parent have unconditional love for a child they raise for a year or two?August 15, 2013 7:17 am at 7:17 am #970947WIYMember
There’s a mitzvah Doraysoh of Veahavta Lereiacha kamocha that obligates us to love a Jewish stranger we just met with unconditional love. So its possible to do it from the first instant you meet someone.August 15, 2013 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #970948popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Can a parent have unconditional love for a child they raise for a year or two?
Yes, I do think so. It is a natural instinct, because they are part of you.

Mine favorite teacher just really loved children

In fact, he was fired because of it

A fantastic sense of humor, respect of my religiosity, and genuine desire for me to grow as both a student and a person. They weren’t afraid to accept me as I was and use that as a baseline to mold me into my full potential instead of something that I wasn’t and hope to never be.
Hooray for awesome teachers!
