As classes change at C. Milton Wright High School in Bel Air on a recent Wednesday, children kiss their mothers good-bye and give them big bear hugs. Then they scamper into a room filled with Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig cutouts -- and their teachers, who are 18-year-old seniors.The school's child-care development class for 4-year-olds is about to begin.It's an odd, fun mix of Barney T-shirts and M.R. Ducks jerseys, tempura paints and nail polish, and Legos and prom photos."I'm going to miss it next year," says senior Erin Hovel, who will be going to Harford Community College in September.
