Not sure if I'm posting this in the right section, but here goes. What are your thoughts on "friending" fellow teachers at your school? Did you wait a certain amount of time? Did you friend them before the year started? Are you not friends with any of them? At my first school, I waited until about January before I sent a friend request to the teachers on my team. It was a private school with a lot of "parking lot talk" so I was very selective as many of the teachers were also parents. This year, I will be at a new school in a totally different district and town. I noticed my former coworkers, who also changed schools for this year, have already become "friends" with several people in their department or on their team after meeting them at New Teacher Orientation or Teacher Week. Opinions?
