Why do I feel such a strong connection with teens?

Psychiatry
In brief: Not sure
What type of connection do you mean? Wanting to help them like as a teacher or counselor can be healthy, especially if you went through some difficult times as a teen yourself.
If you at 35 are sexually drawn to teens, best be careful -- and consider seeing a psychotherapist about this. It would not be healthy and depending on age of teen, illegal.
