This is inappropriate on SO many levels.
1) What message do you think it sends to your daughter to be talking about her teacher this way?
2)Why are you talking about your personal life this deeply with an 8 year old. She's your daughter, not your girlfriend.
3) Outside of sitcoms and harlequin romances, teachers do not date the parents of students. It's incredibly inappropriate and violates professional boundaries.
Teachers are incredible gossips though. So unless you'd like to be the laughingstock of the staffroom, I'd move your attentions elsewhere.
I'm sorry if I sounded like a hoochie, or whatever you think of me.

Actually I'm too shy/timid to say anything at all to tell you the truth....If I were I was going to wait until she's in 4th grade anyways.
It's ok to crush on the teacher. It's just not ok to act on it. Not even when she's in Gr. 4. It violates all sorts of professional boundaries to date a parent. It would have to be one of those FATE things to violate that.
Plus, sweetie, I'm sorry, but you DON'T have so much in common.
"He's 30, I'm 34; He' a Scorpio, I'm a Pisces (a good match up I've heard); His last name is Potter which my all time fav book and movie is Harry Potter. And his birthday is on the same day as my youngest nephew. Oh my brother who's in the accounting field married a teacher, and I work in accounting in my company and he's a teacher. Alot of coincidents..."
Those are only things in common when you're in highschool. His last name is Potter and you like Harry Potter? Seriously? And the birthday? Really. Lots of people have birthday. And that doesn't speak to either of you as people, it's just an accident of birth. Your account brother married a teacher---that's meaningful to HIM how, exactly? What is there in COMMON here? Interests? Belief systems? Values? Sense of humour? Those are things in common.
Oh, and they wouldn't be gossiping about him. It'd be all about you, and while he would be incredibly professional to you, trust me when I tell you he'd be joining in on the staffroom laughter.
I'd be addressing your daughter's behaviour though. Sounds like she's lacking a strong male role model in her life. Perhaps you could ask your brother or a trusted male friend to try and pick up the slack in that area.
