I would have no problem with my child writing a "love" note to their teacher at that age. Makes a teacher feel good; we all need a little more love in our lives.
I love this response. So true!

She calls all of the students "friend." It's a school wide thing. Anyway, I thought it was ridiculously cute, and I really thought it was endearing that she told him she loved him, too. Our kids spend more time at school than they do at home during the school year (minus sleep time). I think it's a GREAT thing if your DD feels like she wants to tell her teacher that she loves him/her. It's a good thing for them to look at school as a positive experience.
This made me smile. It just sounds so sweet.

I'd be happy my child "loved" their teacher. (Of course, I hope mine do since I homeschool them! )
