What do you call your child's teacher?

Posted by   + Show Post

For instance if the teacher's name is Jane Smith, do you call her Jane or Ms. Smith?

When I am speaking in a one on one situation or via email I call her Jane but if I am talking to her in front of my daughter or any other children I call her Ms. Smith. My dd tends to mimic a lot of what I do so I don't want her to stand up in class and say, "excuse me, Jane, I have a question." lol I was just wondering how other moms refer to the teacher.

Mr/Mrs/Miss Last Name

The only exceptions are the 2 who live in our neighborhood, and I call them by their first names only in social settings.

Mrs. Last Name. She's never invited me to call her by her first name.

I call my parents Mr or Mrs except the ones I taught when they were kids lol. Old habits die hard. I call them by their first name and they call me Mrs.

I call them by their first names, but so does DD as that is what they go by at school too.

As Ms. R.... Although I love DD's teacher to death, she is not my personal friend, and I don't feel that it would be respectful for me to call the teacher by her first name. DD's teacher calls me Mrs. C.... Again, love dd's teacher, but I think it would be a little weird for her to call me by my first name. I also have never had a student's parent call me by my first name. They all just know me as Ms. C, but I sign my E-mails and introduce myself by my full name.
