I have heard different opinions on the student/instructor relationship and was wondering what everyone here thinks about it. One person I talked to said that he believed in keeping the relationship professional. Go in, teach the classes, get out. He had this belief that personal feelings can mess up a school. I think that getting to know your students and hanging out with them at times is beneficial to running a friendly school. I like to hold cookouts and meet at the movies with the class. What are your feelings about this?
