Nineteen best-selling romance authors have come together to create the “Hot for Teacher” anthology — 19 new taboo tales of student-teacher romance.
Some are dirty, some sweet and funny, while others are flirty and fun. But all of these stories of forbidden love have one thing in common — an amazing cause.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from “Hot for Teacher” sales will go to proliteracy.org, a charity dedicated to raising adult literacy worldwide.
ProLiteracy not only champions awareness and advocacy, but strives to provide the infrastructure, educators and tools needed to increase literacy in communities that need it the most.
The anthology will only be available for a limited time and contains all new work only available in this special project.
Since I participated in this great cause, I had a chance to catch up with the authors and ask them about their personal stories.
We spoke, not about crushing on teachers, but rather a different kind of spark: the memories we have of that one teacher who first inspired our love of reading and writing, a lifelong affair when writing is your profession.
I asked them each to tell me three things they remembered about that very memorable teacher.
She was my fourth grade teacher. She had the poem “Hurt No Living Thing,” by Christina Georgina Rossetti on the classroom wall. And when we read “Sadako” and the “Thousand Paper Cranes,” we actually made one thousand paper cranes as a class.
She was my elementary school librarian (with a) syrupy Southern accent; I read “A Wrinkle in Time.”
“The second-grade teacher who sent me to the principal’s office for drawing a fart flower. I spent my time waiting for punishment and reading ‘The Pokey Little Puppy.’
She gave me a D+ on my first AP English paper. She was tough-as-nails and hardcore and so freaking put together. She inspired me to work harder than anyone else I’d ever met.
He was encouraging and dedicated to seeing his students succeed. I loved his sense of humor and wit.
Gentle, yet passionate, my eighth-grade English teacher shared her love of literature by opening our eyes to new ideas and led us through deep, thoughtful discussions.
Fourth grade: Ms. Levin told us that if we ever need somewhere to escape, we should read.
Ms. L was the reason I got my first library card.
And she told me dog ears in books were the devil.
When I fell in love with books, it was in fifth grade, in Mr. Beaudoin’s class, when we read “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint Exupéry. Also in grade ten, when we read “A Separate Peace” by John Knowles.
My English teacher taught me to dig deeper for a hidden meaning behind a story, inspired my creativity and challenged me to let my imagination run wild.
In third grade, Ms. Simpson with the soothing voice reading Judy Blume.
In tenth grade my English teacher gave me a notebook in which I could write my poems. She always encouraged me to write, and each week that I did, she rewarded me for my work with a large box of new books to take home and read.
My teacher was a difficult, eccentric, 6-foot tall woman with no use for deodorant.
(My teacher) was wealthy but taught because she loved it. She had a passion for words and didn’t put up with excuses.
Mrs. Clements. It was fifth grade, yet she read to the class every day. She loved my imaginary friends as much as I did.
Alison G. Bailey
Freshmen year in college: Tall, thin, chain-smoking Professor Beasley, who loved Shakespeare.
Mr. Rex, fifth grade. Beard-wearing, guitar-playing hippie. Read “The Hobbit” out loud and did all the voices.
“Harvey,” by Mary Chase. There never will be any new archetypes…just variations of the common twelve. Senior English.
Third grade teacher who read to us all the time. She requested to keep me for another year to do a third/fourth split class because I was her favorite student.
