Susan Bond, 29 years old
My ex-boyfriend of two years and I broke up a few months ago. We are both teachers and had gotten to the point where we were discussing marriage. We both took it really hard, but him especially. About a month later, I expressed interest in getting back together, to which he said "no," so I respected his decision and we decided to lay low for a while, then hopefully become friends. Things have been fine, and we're back on friendly terms, which is great. But I recently received an email from a former student who told me she heard about the break-up and that she can no longer look at my ex the same way. I asked why, and she replied, "Because he's sleeping with a former student. He comes to school all the time dating a former student and they act like a couple around campus.
While relationships between students and professors aren't unheard of, they can be a source for all kinds of problems. A professor is in a position of authority over a student, whether or not he or she is that student's teacher or supervisor, which makes any dating arrangement tricky at best. Ultimately, if dating a former student two are consenting adults there's no scenario where it's OK for a high school teacher to date a current studentthere's not much anyone can do to prevent them from pursuing a romantic relationship. But expect there to be consequences. First things first: A student must be 18 years old to legally be able to consent to a relationship with an adult. Beyond that, some schools have specific rules about what to do if a student and a professor want to pursue a romantic relationship. Breaking those rules could jeopardize the professor's job and the student's status.
Very often they leave deep imprints of their knowledge, humanity and tolerance on the budding minds of the students. Sometimes such relationships can be renewed years later with a romantic angle. So whether dating a former student are seeing a former teacher or just want to know what it would be like to do so, here are a few things to keep in mind.
