    Singular or Plural

    Hello, little trouble with these problems:
    Everyone of those mothers loves/love the teacher.

    He is one of those children who love/loves the teacher.

    I have a feeling both are singualar and both answers should be loves, but would like to get some more expert opinion.

    Anyone,everybody,everyone..../phrases that begin with these words always take singular verbs in present tense.
