My My "MySpace"

Okay. I've had a MySpace account for a while (directorbruce if you're curious!) But, being a teacher of high school students, I've avoided doing much with it in the past. It's not that I think my students are a bunch of jerks who will give me a hard time if they come across my-space. It's more about the challenge of keeping professional life and personal life separated.

For example: Right now, I have Howard Stern as one of my friends (whether it's really Stern or not is irrelevant. I just think it is funny to have him on there!) Now, any one of my friends will understand and appreciate my friend Howard. However, I worry about my students thinking that I condone everything he stands for.

Like I said, personal life and professional life need some distance. So, we'll see how it goes.
