Bud,

I agree 100% that all students are worth the intrusion. I also get a shocked reaction when my colleagues find out that a students has befriended me online. I do have anything to hide; therefore, I should not have to worry about what I post or say because I would happily say it in my classroom. I look at students being online as an opportunity to help me better understand their world and to be a positive example in thier life.

Keep up the great posts!
