Just wondering how you would go about getting in contact with a former teacher who has left the school after you had left it??? any suggestions???

Been interested in getting in touch with a high school teacher I had when I was at school, found out from another former teacher she retired from the school well after I left, how would you go about trying to get in touch with her??? any suggestions or tips???

Well, in my case, I reconnected with a truly admired high school teacher - he had graduated from that school only about ten years previously, a real "Mr. Kotter" kind of experience - because he showed up on the front page of the city newspaper after being ticketed for using a pair of proto-rollerblades to commute on downtown streets.

But I'd try Facebook etc. with all the clues you have for searching. If you can put a few unique data points with a name, it's surprisingly easy to find individuals.

Other than social media networks
and people finding sites that may not be reliable
or up to date, as a last resort hire a private eye.
This should be easy for them. They can find the
information without snooping or stalking.

It's not like television, of course.

If the teacher is not on facebook the school itself might have a page. And never underestimate a decent search engine.

This. Even if she's retired, you can ask on the page, "Does anyone know what Mrs. Soandso is up to, I miss her."

Or if you're still in the area, go to the school. Someone else there may know exactly how to find her and help you out.

That you came to the right place! The obvious option is social networks.

You can come to the school where you studied and politely ask the person who has access to the documents his number or address, explaining the reason. This will be the disclosure of personal data, I understand, but you are not doing it from evil, but with good intentions, so you should not refuse.

Do you remember the name of his wife or husband? You can find these people, and through them it.

Remember the favorite things about which he spoke, his grandmother's house, favorite cafe, or his friends who will help you find this person.

This is only part of my knowledge, but this will be enough.
