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.
Considering they will all be my coworkers I would do first names.
But unless parents know the teacher from somewhere else or have been told to use first names, Mrs. ____ is really the respectful thing to do. I also call parents by their last names. Even if they ask me to use first names I don't unless I've known them a long time. By the time I teach the third kid in the family I might use first names.
One of my team mated started get emails from a parent this year addressed to her first name. We all found it to be a little disrespectful. She's a younger teacher and calling her by her last name supports her authority. We live in very conservative and traditional area. Maybe other places are different.
I call my dd's teacher Mrs___ and she calls me Mrs___ in email and in person. I am currently ds's teacher so that is moot. I did just enroll him into a virtual school for the Fall and I will call him or her Mr or Mrs too.
