I live about 25 minutes from my school. I've worked at three different schools, and the closest I've lived is 20 minutes. I have never seen any of my kids outside of school here, but in Idaho I only saw students 2-3 times (in 3.5 years). It was a small town, so I'm surprised I didn't see them more often. At first I wanted to live closer, but now I appreciate living a little farther away.
