The Role of the Teacher’s Pet: Annoying or Helpful?

The teacher’s pet in most classrooms is the student who wants to do anything possible to win over the teacher’s approval.   The idea of giving students tasks is great to get them involved and make them feel like contributors to the classroom.  It is hard sometimes to handle students who feel as though they want to do everything possible to help you.  It can become annoying after a while for the teacher.  If you can balance tasks out with students without hurting someone’s feelings would be the best solution, but that is easier said than done.  I’m a little unsure of how to find a balance between satisfying the “teacher’s pet” without becoming annoyed.  Any suggestions?
