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.

The students all call their teachers by their formal name (Mr/Mrs/Miss/etc).

But with parents or faculty, it varies.  Sometimes they say the formal name, other times we use first names.  I am on a first-name basis with DD's kindergarten teacher.  If I have to email her, I use her first name for the greeting.

My mom called them Mrs./ Ms./ Mr. Though I've been in the PTO for years and know most of the teachers well by now. We'll refer to them by first names among ourselves in the PTO. Not to kids or other parents though.

I don't remember what my parents did.  For me now personally I address the teachers and faculty however they introduce themselves to me so if they introduce themselves as Mrs. or Mr. I call them that but if they introduce themselves and Jennifer or Jon then I call them that.

My parents said Mr & Mrs. I call my sons' teachers Mrs. Can't imagine doing otherwise.

My parents said Mr. Mrs., etc.  I say that about my kids' teachers too, with the exception of one that was a friend of mine.
