My son will be starting third grade next week. I have recently went to the school for meet your teacher. I was really shocked to find out who it was. Unfortunately I know her. Was friends a long time ago. She got into drugs and partying and we ceased to be friends. She was nice and polite but I have this picture of running into her before and the things she was doing made me sick. I haven't seen her in 5 years before now.I am just worried that she may still be using drugs. Is there anything I can do? Should I request a new teacher?Answer Question

5 years is a long time and what we did when we were young is not what we would do now. If you are that uncomfortable request a change.

If she was still using meth, after 5 years, she would not be able to concentrate and focus on working. She would be a pock marked tweaker and everyone would know simply by looking at her. We all have the potential to change; at any point in our life: there is no magic age for that.
Personally I'd leave it alone unless and until you have a clear indication that she is having a problem teaching the class. I do hope you intend to keep all this past personal knowledge of her to yourself. Nothing can destroy a persons reputation faster than gossip. Remember we've all done things we wouldn't want the world to know about.
