Do any of you still keep in touch with your high school teachers? I keep in touch with a bunch of mine. I feel like in elementary school I never formed such close connections to my teachers and then I went to a bais Yaakov for a short period of time towards the end of high school and keep in touch with a ton of my teachers. What about all of you?May 31, 2013 12:44 am at 12:44 am #956265heythereMember
Kind of. Like before Yom Tov.May 31, 2013 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #956266littlefishyMember
Think about this for a second… a teacher can’t keep in touch with all of the students they’ve ever taught, so chances are the majority would say no.June 2, 2013 3:02 pm at 3:02 pm #956267resident of ds9Member
when you say “keep in touch” it can mean many things. It can mean speaking once a week and catching up on day to day life. It can mean texting every week to catch up on day to day life. It can be speaking when something major comes up – like if you get engaged or are going to be moving etc. It can mean speaking if you need to consult with her about a personal issue. It can mean saying good yom tov before yom tov. And it can mean saying a gut yor before rosh hashana. Which are you referring to? (Its possible there are more – these are the ones I could think of offhand)June 2, 2013 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #956268VogueMember
Personally, depending on the teacher, I have had to call people for job references, and to ask about what to do about personal issues that come up, I don’t keep in touch with all of my teachers.June 3, 2013 4:54 am at 4:54 am #956269Im_jewish_and_I_know_itMember
Just the few that I truly appreciated.June 3, 2013 6:06 am at 6:06 am #956270resident of ds9Member
That makes sense, and I’m sure is the case by many students. You just graduated recently. and you only call them when you need advice/references. As time goes on, there will be new people who know you and you probably won’t be calling as much.
