When you went ty school.

Posted by   + Show Post
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.

Yes and they still call them Mr. and Mrs at my children's school.  The hard part for me is that I went to school with many of the teachers and I have a hard time switching back and forth with their first names when it's personal time and Mrs.  So and so in front of the kids.

I really don't remember when I was in school. I'm assuming they referred to them as mr. or mrs. I'm on first name basis with some of my kids teachers, but I've also known some of the teachers personally for years.

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.

I don't remember when I was in school, but my kindergarten's teacher calls the volunteer parents by their last name (Mrs. Ms. etc LASTNAME).

Same here!

Quoting TristanMitchael:

Oh! Idk what my parents referred to my teachers as. I would think it was Mrs or Mr So & So. I don't really remember. I call Tristan's teacher Mrs. _______ and not by her first name.
