Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, is it normal to crush on a teacher?"

Dear Carol,
I'm 16, and I have this teacher whom I love everything about. He has a great personality and is so smart. I just love his class. Did I mention he is really attractive? All the other girls think he is, too. I hate thinking about it because I feel creepy. Is it just a normal crush?
–Hot For Teacher

Dear Hot for Teacher,
It's totally normal and fine to have a crush on a teacher. What would be creepy, though, is for you to actually act on it. So don't flirt or cross any lines, OK? (Just one kiss could end his teaching career). Instead, enjoy having an extra reason to excel in class.
