Teachers, do old students still keep in touch?
« on: July 01, 2013, 10:46:11 AM »
I have a couple of students who finished school a long time ago that still keep in touch. We talk on the internet and we even meet for coffee sometimes. I guess we can call each other friends, although there's still the student-teacher influence even after all these years.

What about you? Do you keep in touch with your former students?

Well, I do say hello to my old teachers if I see them on the street or in public places but it's weird to go have coffee with them. Don't get me wrong, I don't think teachers are freaks, I just think that they have a different age and different habits, that's all.

I can't say I keep in touch with my teachers. It's nothing personal but it's difficult to start a friendship between someone older than you who you should respect a lot. I see friendship as a close relationship where you can feel free to be yourself and it's hard to do so around teachers.

You kids are so funny :)
Us teachers are people too, we can be friends with the younger generation ;) I don't understand why students are afraid of teachers, we were once just like you you know ;)

I too have a couple of students who I still keep in touch :)
Don't get me wrong, I never had any preferences among my students, but sometimes you see so much potential in someone, you're curious about what they'll do next.

They actually don't, in my case. Well, I hope it isn't me, they seemed to like me as their teacher and I'm sure I did a great job but after graduation everyone seems to disappear.
