Did your parents refer to your teachers with Mrs., Mr., Miss, or Ms.?

At my son's school, they are very first name basis with parents and faculty... I find it weird.

Eta: students say mr. A (principal) and such. But, faculty doesn't fast that to parents. They'll tell me, "I'll let jennifer know then," instead of "I'll let Mrs. C know."
They were first name basis with parents and other faculty. Students address them, though, with Mr. and so on.

I think it's weird too

Quoting Gweneveer:

What?  That is weird!

No, I went to catholic school.  I had mostly nuns.  They were referred to as Sister whatever, lol.  

My dd is in Kindergarten, and she calls her teachers Miss, Mrs. or Mr.

They were Mr. Mrs, Miss, etc.

Yes. I email the teachers a bit (I'm also a room parent) and I say Mrs but they all sign their first names. A few have told me to call them by their first names but I can't. I'm too old and too old school.

I am a middle school special ed. teacher and I always sign e-mails with my first name. Parents generally will call me by my first name in e-mails and in person. When talking about me to their kids they call me Ms. Coates.

I still find it wierd to be called Ms. Coates, but I think some of that is because I am young. Since I work with older kids it is always wierd when they see me out in public and call me Ms. Coates. It catches me off gaurd. I have a student I worked with who has graduated and we still keep in contact and she still calls me Ms. Coates.

Mine were Mr or Miss. ALWAYS. Um, no... I would NOT allow my kids to address their teachers by their first names.

I honestly don't remember.  My DD's teacher said that the parents should call her by her first name.
