High school teacher dating former student
Even after she graduates, there is some stigma to dating a former student. I would say once she turns 21, that would be even better for you. It's not the age difference- I'm 19 and dated a 28 year and it was one of the best relationships I have had- but it can only be bad for your job.
On other message boards, most guys feel that women under 24 years old just come with a lot of drama, and under 21 is even worse. If you waited until she was completely out of the college you teach at, it would be one thing. Plus, you don't know if she is using you to further her educational needs.
Olsen is from Modesto, a city about 75 miles south of Sacramento where teacher James Hooker and student Jordan Powers struck up their relationship at Enochs High School.
Powers has dropped out, but Hooker's 17-year-old daughter still attends.

Three or four years into my teaching stint, I started bumping into former students at bars in and around Philadelphia. They try to use my first name, but can’t ever really pull it off. I ask about their lives and they give me carefully edited updates that feel like answers to test questions.I always said, “Sure,” thinking they’d graduate and forget all about me. It usually played out like this: a drink arrives unordered and the server points out a familiar face at the other end of the room. And then silence finally conquers all, at which point we hug awkwardly and part ways.
