    I email my old teachers from and to their personal accounts and have done since the age of about 17.

    I'm now a teacher myself and can't say I would have a massive issue with the odd ex-pupil knowing my personal email address. Depends what you are implying about your relationship, I guess.

    it can be against the rules of your school, but I wouldn't see anything too wrong with it I've been in contact with male teachers since leaving school (and I'm female) I still wouldn't see anything wrong with it, the relationships have never been anything but friendly

    I'm in contact with quite a few of my old teachers. It's natural to form a bond, especially if they were present for much of your schooling life.
    Legally, it's fine. And don't feel bad - it's human nature to want to keep in contact. As long as you're not doing anything that might harm your previous schools reputation (which I very much doubt you are) I can't see a problem with it.
    Besides, if there was something to worry about I'm sure the teacher would stop contacting you as she wouldn't want to lose her job.
    So in short, no - you're not doing anything wrong.

    Have a nice day!

    Heya,
    One of my old teachers has moved off, and we catch up via email maybe once a month or so. She's helped me through some pretty tough times despite how far away she is and she's a lovely woman. Our school policy is 18 for adding friends on facebook, and she's invited me to do so when I am (youngest in my year is pretty irritating). It's totally legally fine and she obviously wants to remain in contact with you. However stuff like meeting up you need to be careful with. Policy-wise again *sighs* it's something like you're not allowed proper contact until 23 or something ridiculous. Not happening haha. :-)
