Contraction of "might not"

I'm certified to teach English as a second/foreign language. I'm specializing in teaching English grammar (and teaching English to children) because contrary to popular belief, not much is taught about grammar in a certification class.

Anyway, I just finished reading the textbook Focus on Grammar, Book 3 (Intermediate). It said that we *usually* don't contract "might not." When do we *ever* contract "might not," and how does that look? Mightn't?

Edit: If you use "mightn't," where are you from?
