How to Find My Old School Teacher?

Reconnect with an school teacher has recently grown in popularity. Many people have fond memories of their long-suffering form teacher. The one whom you perpetually frustrated and drove to distraction.

Where are they today? The prospect of catching up with your former schoolteacher on an informal basis, it very appealing. To be able to socialise with, have a laugh, and maybe share a pint together down the pub. Show them how well you have matured. The sheer joy of no longer having to address them as “Miss or Sir”! That’s going to be a tough one!

That special childhood chum. Where are you?

Unfortunately no longer around. Seemingly vanished into the annals of history. That very special and memorable childhood friend, the one who can deliver a time window. Rewinding the clock back to those heady days when you were both growing up.

You know! The one who would protect by lying to a teacher to ever up for you. Or parents and authorities in order to get you out of a scrape. A lovely, delightful, reliable, and trustworthy mate.

In those days, you both were naively planning on being side-by-side- forever. Together through the journey of life.

How come you both lost touch?

A plethora of reasons. However, in hindsight, none really added up. Other than perhaps complacency.

Complacency: equals taking them for granted. Either consciously, or subconsciously.

Nowadays the question/excuse does not apply. Today, once you have a contact stored in a digital device its there for good.

Especially if the storage is an email address. Various apps. stay with us for life. So no matter where you are now, or where might/could move to in the future the link remains.

We send an SMS. Facebook, Instagram, or WhatsApp messages. Indeed you can keep in touch every few minutes of every day.

Whereas 40 – 50 years ago contacts were either an entry in a diary or written down somewhere.

So they could have genuinely been misplaced. Often as a result of say, moving home.

Let’s take for example this author growing up in the 1950s.

Friends Reunion UK

Whilst in school time we all had our own special set of friends. But at the end of each school day, we naturally parted company to our respective homes. That ‘was it’ until the next day when meeting up at school again. Or outside of school, and at weekends.

The only other communication was via friends, by post, or landline telephone. Although my parents didn’t have a telephone!

In contrast, today, we have a number of more sophisticated ways to find and retain an old-fashioned friend. But, it could take ages, with no end of ‘false starts’ along the way.

How to find or Reunite old school friends?

Try to use Social Media and Search Engines

    • Begin your search with the first stop being Google. Search screenshotThis is the simplest and most convenient starting point. It is the first step to tracking down old school friends. Type your friend’s name into the Google search bar and see if you get any hits or feedback. You may want to add extra information such as a married name or date of birth. Don’t hold your breath as it is most unlikely that your old classmate will pop up on a Google search. If by some chance they do appear in a Google search, it will probably be a mention which will not be of much use in locating them.Search screenshot from Facebook
    • Facebook seems to be the most obvious place. But to be honest I have not found it very useful.

For example what about if the surname is “Smith”. Facebook will throw up hundreds of them worldwide. It shows where they live now, but for us in the UK, if it’s Phoenix Arizona, how is that going to help?

Especially when you last knew them they lived in Scunthorpe. If it is female and married, their maiden name isn’t going to help very much.

    • Continue by entering the world of social media. Facebook is one of the most popular social media platforms, and it is possible to successfully find an friend from childhood. However, there can be obstacles such as having a common name, or your friend may not use social media. It is not a one-size-fits-all when using social media and from our experience, there are many more failures than successes. When trying to track down old-school friends it is best not to get too hopeful and expect a magical outcome from the social media route.
    • Use all the information at your disposal for your search. Start in the area where you last had contact with your friend. Many schools are listed online with yearbooks and members, which is a good place to start. After exhausting Google and Facebook which are the obvious places to begin a search start to widen to include LinkedIn, Instagram, and more specific searches such as which has a huge database collected over the last 30 years.

The frustrating part of the search is that there are many rabbit holes that you can get caught up in. It is hard tracking down Classmate. People grow up, move to different areas, or even countries, get married, and change their names.

    • Continue by sharing your information with professionals.  Often social media is a mystery to the older generation, even though grandchildren have set up profiles for their grandparents these platforms can be tricky for them to navigate. So, with an unwillingness to admit they cannot grasp the program grandparents have the opportunity to turn to a reputable tracking agency such as Friends Reconnected. Here they feel more comfortable phoning or sending an email to  a professional tracing agency that has been in the business of tracking down old-school friends for many years.
