NYC Student-Teacher Flirtations on Facebook: Don’t Friend So Close to Me

I wasn’t offended when Drew Barrymore smooched her English teacher in “Never Been Kissed.” And I wasn’t particularly put off by Pacey Witter’s love affair with his English teacher Tamara Jacobs on “Dawson’s Creek.” We’ve all probably had an innocent schoolgirl (or boy) crush on a teacher, so seeing a student-teacher romance brought to life on the big or small screen can be relatable.

But in real life, it’s just creepy. The New York Post recently reported that at least three teachers in New York City public high schools have been fired in the past six months for inappropriate contact with students on Facebook.

“I’m not a gynecologist, but I’ll take a look inside,” read a line on the Facebook profile of Chadwin Reynolds, a teacher at Fordham High School for the Arts in the Bronx.

Reynolds friended at least five female students, making comments like, “This is sexy,” on some of their Facebook photos. He was fired earlier this year, but following in his footsteps were Manhattan substitute teacher Stephen D’Andrilli— who friended several female students, telling one that she was pretty and he wanted to come visit her—and Queens teacher Laurie Hirsch—whose Facebook flirtations with an 18-year-old former student led to a sexual relationship.

With social networking sites further blurring the boundaries between students and teachers, some are calling for the Department of Education to restrict interaction between teachers and students on sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Fox News says “teachers should simply never ‘friend’ their students on Facebook.”  What do you think?

    I can see today’s hip teachers wanting to communication with their students via social media. I’m sure they recognize that students are on these sites, and they might receive the information faster through a tweet or Facebook message than even an email. One of my friends worked as a tutor for college athletes with learning disabilities, and she’d Facebook chat with them if they ever had any questions about assignments.

    But as long as it’s professional, I think it’s fine.
