I had a really good class this school year that I will greatly miss. This is the first year I feel like I have made real connections with a couple of my kids and their families. There was one student this year in particular that I grew very close to. I have been to his house a few times and formed a friendship with the family (parents and siblings, too). What is your policy for keeping in touch with students? Have you spent time with students over the summer when they are out of your class? I plan to do this, but wanted to see if this was normal with those kids you were really close with.
