Lord, no. I don't friend people I work with, which would include students. I've heard one too many Facebook horror stories.

Not until the course had ended, that's for sure.

I did for a while, in the wake of a student's suicide a few years back. It seemed like the right thing to do at the time. Now I don't, b/c that seems like the right thing now. But I have plenty of fb friends that require a delicate hand anyway, so I don't post anything that's particularly offensive.

No, that would be a disaster

Hell, no! I had a relationship to one of my students once (long before Facebook), and that got me into trouble. So I don't think adding them on FB would be a good idea; people couls easily get the idea that you have favorites.
You could of course add them all, but you really don't like all of them.

Only the hottest girls.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/20/11 - 12:00:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not even a little.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/20/11 - 12:24:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
if it were college, maybe. i wouldn't have to add all of them, right?

Add them all or add none - nothing in-between.

Would I? Only if I wanted to use my facebook account as a way to connect with my students. And then I'd use it for nothing and no one else.

I don't know about the teachers point-of-view, but I wouldn't want to be friends with my teachers! I hate Facebook anyway though.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/20/11 - 5:19:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
deal with them enough in school I don't want them in my free time
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/20/11 - 8:33:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe if they were a child I was social with on a personal/conversational basis.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 5/20/11 - 9:25:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that would be weird.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 5/21/11 - 11:53:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Only If they graduated.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 5/21/11 - 3:40:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
only if they graduated. i know my old english teacher got fired because she was seen in pictures partying with people in our school drinking who were underaged
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 5/21/11 - 3:51:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Are they hot?
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/22/11 - 4:37:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes I am friends with all my teachers Lolz :)))))
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/26/11 - 7:12:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
i'd probably make a separate facebook for that.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/26/11 - 7:17:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
The teachers I know that do tend to be teachers that went back to high-school to make friends. Not teachers I particularly admire. I can see IRLI's exception, but I'm not sure I'd handle it the same way.

But then, I dislike FB anyway, and don't maintain my account.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/26/11 - 10:42:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
That is a little bit creepy.
However, when we left school we added some teachers on facebook, its nice for them to see what we're up to these days I suppose, as we were quite close with some of them.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 5/26/11 - 10:49:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
That would be idiocy.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 5/28/11 - 11:15:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that would seem kind of creepy, don't you think?
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 6:57:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
if i hav my own life as a teacher like on weekends i drink and party and say curse words on facebook or talking about stuff that would be considered inapropriate for children that were my students i would not add them. But, i would mabye add them after the school year if i was really going to be friends with a kid if they knew who i was, or i sure over the summer i would be doing the same exact thing over the weekend during the school year, along with what i said before , cursing to my friends. On the other hand, i would be probably friends with my fellow colleagues, including other teachers, my teachers friends, my boss/the principal. but definatly no to having my students be my friends over facebook during the school year, maybe like 20% sure about having bieng friends with my friends over facebook after the school year, and as Latios said, it is creepy to be friends with a kid over FB
