That is hands-down the number one coolest love letter I have ever seen in my life. I am using all those lines from now on!

Hmmmm...the five things you don't know about me are probably illegal;-)

Things I will admit to:
1. I got busted for looking up my first grade teacher's dress. Your teacher should consider herself lukcy;-)

2. I snapped a kid's headgear (for braces) back into his face in 5th grade. He recognized me 15 years later...

3. I was kicked out of the cafeteria in 5th grade for starting a food fight.

4. I was kicked out of Spanish class in 11th grade (I think?) for starting a fire in the class (it WAS an accident). En fuego...

5. I, like you, also didn't complete college. My GPA when I did go probably hovered around a 1.6, largely because I thought going to the beach was more important. I did, however, do much better the second time I went to college here (I got a 3.8).

Positive things:
1. I like reading.
2. I speak a fair amount of Thai. I also speak a little Mandarin and German.
3. My favorite hobby is photography.
4. The two people I love the most are my fiancee and my daughter (they put up with me).
5. My secret desire is/was to be a rockstar.

I won't comment on how many times I was stoned in college;-) Those years are well behind me now...

I love "the cycle," with the stoned handicap in the Pascal class. I remember getting so frustrated with one of my econ finals that I broke out the Jagermeister from my backpack, which I had intended to drink afterwards, halfway through it.

I was also hitting on... I mean speaking with... a freshly-minted elementary school teacher last night who was talking about having received a love note from a student and not knowing how to react. I am going to share the link to yours.

Trish Irwin

This is your first grade teacher, Mrs. Trish Irwin. I just want to tell the world how brilliant you are. When David was 6 years old, he was so beyond first grade reading material, that I went to the English Department at WVU and got the suggested reading material for incoming freshmen. The first book David read for me was Mary Shelly's FRANKENSTEIN. The second book was DRACULA. He liked monsters.

At Christmas, David gave me a two carrot cuibic zirconia ring. At Easter, he gave me a nightgown. I called him and asked if we were engaged.

He wanted to spend more money for my gifts than on his own mother. He argued with her that he spent x amount of time a day with her and x plus amount of time with me, therefore he should spend more money on me than on his own mom. Maria didn't go for that logic. She was smart too.

He was and is the most fascinating and wonderful student of my 35 year teaching carreer. David not only was outstanding in his intellectual ability, but in personality.

He was sensitive, kind, funny, and had perfect pitch. He hated my singing.

I was so privileged to be his teacher and it is a good thing I didn't have him in second grade. I barely kept up with him in first.

It makes me so happy to now call him friend.

Thanks, Dave, for distinguishing my teaching carrer and enriching my life.

Love,

Trish
