James Franco to Teach at Yale

Have You Had a Crush on a Teacher?

I met the head of my college's English department the first day of my junior year. Swedish and 6'5", he was like a 40-something Alexander Skarsgård. He was a Renaissance man, and by that I mean he taught literature from the 16th and 17th centuries. It wasn't my area of interest, so he told me he'd be my adviser until I found someone more appropriate. I didn't think that would be necessary, I said. It was.

His classes overflowed with women, more so than the average literature class, which is how I envision James Franco's class looking at Yale. The actor will enroll this Fall to earn a PhD in English literature, and by January he'll bypass the TA thing and teach his very own class.

Since Yale banned student-teacher relationships this Spring, students will probably have to keep Franco in their daydreams. Nonetheless, I imagine a few inappropriate crushes will blossom. Were you ever more interested in a teacher than his course?

My sister and I both had crushes on our high school music teacher, but mainly because he was really sweet and funny, not because he looked like Bob Saget lol.

Oh, my, yes. He looked like Matthew Perry (fit one). Mmmm. I took him for two semesters and I got As, both times! ;p

Yes. And we dated after the semester was over. I was in college, so I was of legal age.

Yup, on one of my English lit profs. I never admitted it to anyone though because everybody liked him. He was very nice and I'm glad I got a very good mark in his class.

I had a crush on my public relations professor. He was highly attractive! I nicked name him Mr. Papito ( which translate into Mr. Hottie in English.) I also had a crush on my philosophy professor, and I think he actually liked me too. I never persuade anything with him because 1) he was married and 2) 20 years my senior--even though it didn't look it.

Yes, my senior year of high school I had a crush on my history teacher. I think it is kind of funny that 90% of people said yes...maybe people like the idea of someone in a higher position being attracted to you.

A hot bio lab TA was one reason I got a high A in a often failed course. I also had an attractive literature teacher in college, but it was much harder for some reason to focus in his class.

Yes, including my mentor teacher. We, ahem, ended up having a brief fling after the student-teacher power dynamic was over; but, we're still associates.

Oh yes. I had a huuuge crush on my high school chemistry teacher. He was pretty young and really cool, and of course, adorable.

My anatomy/sculpture teacher was amazing. The things he could do with clay always impressed! I also loved his prudish professionalism when discussing anatomy, when he would gently say "gluteal crevice," instead of "butt crack." He was so respectful of the models, and so passionate about his subject, that it was hard not to crush on him a little.

Oh yeah! I had a gorgeous philosophy instructor my very first semester of college. In fact, it was my very first college class ever, as it was in the morning. I was sitting in class, terrified about starting college, and then he walked in and I was like, "Wow, I think I'm going to like this afterall..." He was married, so I pretty much just spent the rest of the semester daydreaming. If I had James Franco as an instructor, I'd have a very hard time paying attention to anything in class.
