I once inherited an apartment from a teacher that had given out her home phone number to her students and I used to get disturbed by phone calls at the most annoying times of day: “Is XXX there? Oh…When did she leave? Are you a teacher? Do you want to go out for coffee?”
I don’t give out my number to any of my students but I get asked for it all the time - not just by the winsome wench in the fron row either :?
Does anyone else have this problem, and what is your response?
I keep an email address specifically for students only, which I give out to avoid disappointing people. I don’t get many people actually contacting me, and those that do are often looking for supplementary material that I have told them I have available, so I don’t mind at all.
