Something is telling me that I should stop extending my social media life to my students. It started with Twitter where I was able to discover my own can of worms. Recently, some of my students found me in Facebook. I added them in my list and I admit there are advantages and disadvantages of extending our contact in social media.
One of my students posted this status message in his account
“What kind of teacher do you have? Go ahead, answer the question guys. ”
Being one of his teachers, I checked the comments and I was surprised with the thread of harsh words I read
I felt sad and disappointed. I may not be the subject of their complaints but it pains me to know that most kids remember the worst and not the best of their teachers.
