Way, way back in my high school freshman year I had a youngish english teacher that I think might have been a lot like you. She was fabulous. She was sexy as all get out — in a non showy sort of way— and dove the boys crazy, yet had absolutely no problem maintaining perfect class discipline. Moreover she was darn good about teaching her subject— unbelievably effective combination.

Twenty years later when, as our advisor, she was invited to our reunion. I made darn sure to tell her all the ways in which we guys appreciated her. She gave me a knowing little smile, as if to say you guys were easy.
