    I remember long ago (and not far away) teaching PE my first year. 3rd-7th. I had a 3rd grade girl that must have had a crush on me. It was no big deal. Over the 40 yrs I taught PE some kids want to be close to you and some dont. Some want hugs and others do not. I never worried much about personal space with Elem. kids. It was human and natural to have them run up to hug or hold my hand (usually kindergarten). I was called dad so many times I lost count. High school would be much different but many times I would go up to middle school and many of the same kids would run to me for hug or chat.

    That is pretty much typical behavior for a 5 yr old girl whom you have treated kindly.
    I wouldn't worry about it.
    If the kid was older , conniving, or 1 who was from a real dysfunctional family, it'd be different.
    I know a 7 yr old male student who accused a male teacher of sexual abuse once. He came from an extremely messed up family, had been sexually abused at home, and was an extreme behavior problem. I would never have wanted to be left alone with him.
