Is This Okay Or Weird?

Okay, I have a mother of a little boy who just turned 5 and is in my daughter's class as my Facebook friend.  I remembered her from school.  We went to the same school although she graduated ahead of me.  Anyway, she posted Easter pics of her 2 sons.  I happened to see that our kids' teacher is one of her Facebook friends and had commented on the pics.  Is it weird to have your kid's teacher as your Facebook friend assuming you've known them just since the beginning of the school year and not your whole life?

I have my child's kindergarten teacher as a friend, but I work with her and we are friends.

Weird...I don't really think it is weird at all. Inappropriate maybe but I think it really depends on how well you know the teacher. If you knew them before the school year started or have really gotten to know them during the year and feel comfortable with them reading everything you post then go for it. I have my son's teacher assistant as a friend on facebook. I have known her for many years and so I added her. I also added her before I learned that she was the assistant in my son's class.

 If I was a teacher I dont think I would want to have parent's on my fb but as a parent I would love to have that easy communication available.  I dont think it's weird though
