A little background - Two years ago I took at 3 month maternity leave at a school. I started in April and the job went until the end of the year. Due to many reasons (my 'newness' to teaching, an administration unwilling to help me and the teacher I took over for undermining my authority at every turn), the students and I had a very strained relationship. I had a hard time making it through the 3 months I was there. I am now in a different school district in an area close to where I was previously. I have a permanent contract and I am happy where I am. I have a facebook account, as do many teachers in my district, which I have set as private as possible. This summer, 3 students from my former school tried to add me as friends. I DO NOT add students, so I declined. It happens frequently, but I think most students understand that a teacher isn't really going to add them, and drop it. However, one of the three who tried to add me this summer tried again. Again, I declined. That was early in the year. Fast forward to today. I get home and see that this student has sent me a message that says "DON'T BE RUDE!" I promptly deleted the message and blocked that student from sending me anything more. My question is whether this is something that I should speak to my administration about. I do not have a good history with these students and I am concerned that they are trying to goad me into something and when they realise that they aren't going to get anywhere online that it will turn into something else. I am not afraid for my physical safety at all....these kids are not violent. I am concerned for my professional reputation. These students made no secret of the fact that they tried to get me fired when I was their teacher. These students are now at a different school from the one I taught at. I do, however, know the administration at their new school, so I could contact them if need be. Is this something I should be worried about? Thanks for your opinions.
