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?

You need yo use the email address provided...FB is not appropriate for parent/teacher conversation.

I am a preschool teacher and I would not mind at all if a family wanted to add me. I can see why some people want to keep that part of their lives separate though. I would never add a family first though.

  Use the email she gave you not face book. You would be bothering her unless she has a face book page just for parents and students.  She and yourself are entitled to a private life. I won't even be friends with a coworker. You are not responsible for what others post on your page and their views might not reflect your values. Do you want to be judged for what others post?

I become friends with my kids' teachers on facebook after they have already been in their class. And not many of their teachers use facebook anyway.

I am FB friends with the teachers but I also work at the school so it is just friends.  I don't talk to them about my children or ask school questions on FB.   I contact them thru email if there is a problem.  On FB they are just friends not teachers.

I am friends with his preschool teachers, but I am not with his current K teacher. I don't think she even has a fb, but we text all the time.

But, to answer your question, I would just use the email she provided.
