it is my first year teaching so other than student teaching, i haven't had any experience with yearbooks. i teach 8th grade and i was wondering if anybody else signs their students' yearbooks or lets their students sign theirs. i kind of want to let my students sign mine to remember my first year and the kids i have! what do you guys do? and do you sign your students' yearbooks? i guess i would if a student asked me to!

I teach 5th and 8th graders and I sign their yearbooks if I am asked. I usually say something simple like "Be Happy!" and sign my name. Reminds me of my youth!! And yes, I would ask them to sign mine too, never thought to do that!

I teach 6th, 7th and 8th and I always sign yearbooks when asked. I have never had students sign mine - just never thought about it, I guess.

I've never purchased a yearbook, but I don't think there's anything wrong with letting the kids sign yours. I always sign the kids' books when asked. I usually say "See you in the hall!" I explain that I'll see them in the 7th grade hall.

I don't wear a lot of makeup everyday, but I always take time to wear a photogenic top and lipstick on picture day. This photo may be the only artifact the kids have to remember me by. I try to look as good as possible in a 1x1.5 inch pic!

I teach 5th grade. If a student asks me to sign his or her yearbook, I always do. I usually try to write a brief, but personal message.

I always buy a yearbook. I pass it around the classroom and ask each of my students to sign it. I encourage them to write a personal message to me, but I tell them they don't have to. It is a great keepsake, and it is so fun to go back and read all the sweet things they write. :p

I love yearbooks! Yes, I let them sign each others, and I let them sign mine. I always make sure they know not to write something ugly in someone's yearbook. Just a brief reminder, although they usually are fine.
