 How many of you actually have your children's teachers on your Facebook (if you even have Facebook)?  I may have made the awful mistake last year of adding some of them (and parents) and now wish that I hadn't because it's too hard to take them off.  I have actually seen a lot more than I have wanted to see and wish I was completely ignorant to their "petty", childish behaviors.  Take the poll ... I am anxious to know.

 I have a few people from school on there but I think I am going to delete them.   I won't delete just one, I will be sure to remove all for the sake of my sanity.  I am learning that even at the elementary age, "cliques" exist.  Moms that manipulate the teachers with gifts, etc.  Done, I'm over it.

No, I would never have my sons teachers as facebook friends. I am actually surprised they accepted the request.

No.  Facebook is personal.  My relationship with their current teachers are professional.  In a sense.

 I love ALL of your responses .... maybe my daughter's school is a little strange.  I guess I got caught up in it because so many people immediately popped up on her kindergarten teachers facebook page that I felt the "peer pressure" and felt I needed to.  So good to hear this from all of you.  Now, to find a way to delete them is the question.

I'm a teacher and I have some parents of former students and they were friends while I taught the kids. We're a small school system and lives intertwine a lot. I'm not against being friends with my son's teachers. At one point I even contacted a parent when I had issues with her son. It was the easiest and quickest way to get in touch with her.

Why not just remove them from your news feed. Then you won't have to see their pettiness and won't have to explain deleting them.
