    I'm not talking about just one kid at a time. I think it's gross to shake the hands of 20 or more kids in a row. As I said, our AP was asked to stop it.

    Very rarely for me. Maybe a fist bump every now and again. I teach middle school.

    I won't work for a school that has a policy against safe touching. It simply is wrong for them to say you can't give any high fives, hugs, pats on the shoulder, etc. especially when kids often initiate it. I don't understand why it has to be a big deal to some people. If the kids aren't saying it makes them uncomfortable and they are using common sense, such as not touching the areas that I don't think I need to explicitly state, then what's the problem?
