Your child's teacher and Facebook
October 2, 2012 at 7:00 AM

Are you friends on FB with your childs teacher? Do you expect to be? Does it matter what age your child is? ie: I'll be friends with childs teacher until she is in grade X. I have a kindergardener, and thought contact with the teacher would be pretty easy thru FB. Should I be 'bothering' her through there, or should I be using the email address she provided at the beginning of the school year?

Are you FB friends with your child's teacher?

    I would not be friends on FB. You want to keep the relationship separate from the rest of your life. I would just use the email she provided. I guess I would worry if you posted something or someone posted something on your wall that the teacher found "offensive" or "questionable" on how you're raising your child. You never know what people will think.

    That's just my opinion

    I have liked my child's school on FB, simply for the updates...but I would never be friends with any of the faculty.

    I am not FB friends with any of my school age children's teachers. I contact them through their school email or by phone. I feel that their FB is part of their personal lives and they deserve time away from school too.

    However I did in home childcare for a couple years and was FB friends with some of the parents of the kids I watched. It was a bit different though, I only watched 3 LOs.

    No way! But unlike what has been said, I am not worried about my personal life or theirs, top rule in our house is NO FACEBOOK WHATSOEVER! I'm actually surprised DH and myself came up with an agreement for me to use this site and a stupid cellphone game site.

    We homeschool, so that's not an issue, lol.

    If we didn't, I wouldn't friend their teachers. Teachers need some privacy and a separation with work and "play".

    Use the school email she provides you.
    I feel being Facebook friends is way over stepping your boundraries.
    How many times have you seen people complain about something a teacher wrote in their Facebook page? Teachers need their space too, after school is their time.

    Not with current teachers but I am friends and Facebook friends with my daughters head start teacher. It's been about 6 yrs now since she's been in head start. She actually came to a Cinco de Mayo party we had when my daughter was in her class....lol. So muh fun!

    No way!!! I would never be friends with my kids teacher on fb. There are lots of other ways to get in touch with her that are just as easy!
