A/N: Ok first of all, that is my favorite gif of JDM! And second, yes I posted two JDM fics in the spam of two days. And they both have to do with school, weird right? I could have posted chapter 2 to “College Can Be Fun, Right?” but I had too many ideas about this one in my head. But Chapter 2 should be up soon! This fic is about the reader being a teacher and JDM being a student’s father. DISCLAIMER: I know nothing really about being a teacher so if I get something wrong, I apologize. Again, this fic is 100% MINE and WRITTEN BY ME. Also, it may not be that great because I started and finished this today. But, I’ve had ideas for it for like a month. Ok, I’ll stop talking, Enjoy!

You made sure to get to the school extra early today, since the first day is always hectic, especially for kindergartners. It was nice to have a few minutes to yourself before the parents and the children arrived, and you always needed it. Although no amount of coffee or sleep could help you with the parents who threatened you to make sure their child would have the best first day or the parents who tried to bribe you to make sure their child got more attention than the others, at least trying your best to prepare yourself seemed to help. Well, this was only your second year teaching. Hopefully the first year is the only bad year a teacher will have, since last year’s first day was hectic. You sighed and dropped your face to the desk. You looked up at the clock to see that people would start coming in in a few minutes, making you groan again in desperation. Now you loved children and you loved being a teacher, it had always been a dream job of yours. But sometimes, it was the parents that made you want to rip your hair out. Even though you were the one with the degree in education and had the teaching license, some parents insisted that you had no idea what you were doing and that they knew everything. But you had to endure it because teaching the little ones brought you so much joy, and you wouldn’t let some bitter parents get in the way of that. The first day of school was a day that all teachers had to get through.
After you looked in the mirror and made sure that you looked your best, you heard the voices of many parents and their anxious children enter the school. You did a quick sweep of the room to make sure that nothing was out of place and that it was as clean as possible. Mrs. Sanchez from across the hall quickly ran into your room to see how you were doing. “Here they come! Are you ready?”, she asked you with a bright smile on her face. You gave her a nervous smile and replied, “Well I sure hope so!”. “Oh don’t worry dear, you’ll do fine. The kids love you and that’s all that matters! Just remember, after today, the rest just gets easier. The first day is the only stressful day so relax!”. Hearing her say those words really allowed you to calm down and gave you some hope. She was right, after today, there’s almost nothing to worry about. And the only reason last year was a bit uneasy was because you were a new teacher. “Thank you so much Mrs.Sanchez, that really helped me out”, you gave her a bright smile. After that, she hurried across the hall back to her room to make sure that she wouldn’t get any earfuls about a disorderly room. You walked around the room again to make sure that the desks were neatly aligned, the labels were clean and clear, the chairs were pushed in all the way, and that the room as a whole was spotless.
A few moments later, the first parent and child walked into the room. You gave them a bright smile before greeting them happily, both of them seeming to be excited. Soon parents and children started to flow into the room, and before you knew it, the room was full. You tried your best to navigate the room and talk to all the parents and children, quickly finding out which parents would most likely give you a hard time this year. You showed the children to their desks and they, with the help of their parents, would fill their desks with their school supplies. Most of the children seemed to be excited and happy, but some were crying and screaming and begging for their parents to take them back home. You almost had to laugh, because that was you on your first day of school. An excited little girl ran up to you, snapping you out of your thoughts. You looked down at her with a smile saying, “Hello! What’s your name?”. “My name is Amelia!”, she said with the biggest smile. She was the most adorable little girl you’ve ever seen. “Well, Amelia, are you excited for your first day?”. “Yes!!”, she screamed loud enough for everybody in the room to hear. You laughed at her excitement and she ran over to the back of the room. You looked up to see where she had run off to and you swore your heart almost stopped.
She ran into the arms of the most incredibly sexy man you’d ever seen. He had the most mesmerizing eyes and a smile that made your knees threaten to wobble. His gorgeous hair and that black leather jacket he wore almost made you forget to breath for a moment. Now this wasn’t fair. You would have never thought you’d meet any man in your life that breathtakingly beautiful, and it definitely should not have been a parent of one of your students. You almost stopped breathing again once you realized that he was walking over to you. You had to calm yourself down in your mind so that you wouldn’t turn into an absolute fool when you spoke to him. “Hey, I’m sorry about that. Amelia here can get a little too excited sometimes”, he said, his deep voice as smooth as velvet soothing you and somehow stirring you up at the same time. “Oh it’s ok, I’d much rather have excited children over anything”, you replied, trying your best to cover up the fact that he was making you melt. He laughed at what you said and you thought you would faint at the musical sound. Why did he have to be so perfect? “Well that’s good because Amelia has been saying how excited she is for school to start for weeks now!”. “Well I can’t wait to meet new friends!”, Amelia said, looking at her handsome father. “Well, why don’t you go and make new friends right now and I can talk to Ms.Y/L/N alone hmm?”. Amelia quickly ran away, thrilled at the idea of meeting new friends already. But once she was gone, your stomach fluttered, realizing that you had to talk to this man one on one.
“I’m sorry, I just realized I forgot to introduce myself, I’m Jeffrey”, he said, reaching out his hand and towering over you, making you realize just how tall he was. Gladly shaking his big, soft hand, you replied, “Hello Jeffrey, you can call me Y/N”. “So, Y/N, you’re a new teacher right?”, he asked you, God you loved the sound of him saying your name. “Yes, this is only my second year teaching”. “Well the first year is always the worst, so at least that’s already behind you”. He gave you a reassuring smile and you almost jumped out of your skin. “Thank you, I just hope that these kids will enjoy me as much as I do them”. “Well I have no doubt that a beautiful woman like you will be a wonderful teacher for my daughter”. His words made your heart explode and you felt like you could do twenty backflips. Before you could respond, Amelia called him over to show him her desk. “I’ll be right back, Y/N”, he said before he left you. You were kind of in shock for a moment. Did he just call you beautiful? Maybe you were dreaming or making up some scenario in your head to deal with the fears of the first day.
Soon it was time for class to start and the parents to leave as they started to say their last goodbyes to their children. You waited at the door as the parents left so that you made sure you got the chance to see every parent’s face. Jeffrey was the last parent to leave as he gave Amelia one last hug before finally walking to the door. Before he left, he turned to you with a smile and said, “I’ll see you when I pick her up today, and tell me if she does anything bad or doesn’t behave because I know she behaves most of the time at home but sometimes-”. “I’m sure she’ll be fine, don’t worry about her. I’ll make sure she has a great first day of school”, you cut off his rambling with hopeful assurance. He gave you a meaningful smile and held your hands for a moment, “Thank you so much, Y/N”, before finally leaving. That man was going to be the death of you. You took a deep breath and went to the front of the room to start the new year over again with brand new kids to teach.
