- Teacher's names
On the way home from school this afternoon I told my 6 year old that I knew the Christian name of her teacher.
Ever since, it’s like I hold the key to the Holy Grail.
I’d forgotten the mystique facts about the teacher holds when you’re 6!
She can’t wait until Monday to share the knowledge.Posted 4 years agomilky1980Member
Took my 13 year old cousin to school once. Got to the school gates and bumped into an ex-girlfriend from my college days. Got talking to her, catching up etc. Turned out she was his form tutor!! He put two and two together and realised that I knew more than just her first name 8)Posted 4 years agoontorMember
I have the middle initial x on our school systems (we have to have 3 letters apparently and I have no middle name). I tell the (secondary) kids I have spanish roots and it stands for Xavier or Ximenes. It’s amusing when the two groups argue over which name is, “but he told me it was….”, usually they twig at this point…Posted 4 years agotiggs121Member
Techy teacher here too – where are you Househusband?
Kids in our place know all teachers first names as when we use our projectors to show daily bulletin etc the name of the user is on the bottom of the screen.
I do remember as a kid it was a big deal to find out the teachers’ name.Posted 4 years agoaracerSubscriber
I do IT support at my kids’ school. Have to do the mental switch between referring to the teachers by first or surname depending on whether I’ve got my kids with me (something I sometimes fail on with the headteacher, as I tend to have more direct dealing with him than anybody else, so very used to first name terms!) I have on occasion really struggled to remember surnames, as I don’t use them on a regular basis for most of the teachers – actually now I come to think of it I’m not even sure I know the surnames of some TAs.
FWIW my kids’ teachers are called Claire and Liz 😉Posted 4 years agokcalSubscriber
Our kids’ head teacher at primary school was Mr. Barron. Nothing particularly unusual about that, except when I was at school with him, his surname was ‘Bottom’. A wise choice I’d say !! And I was always impressed at how few kids actually knew this, given how many of their parents did!Posted 4 years ago
