What do your student's call you? My old school I was always Ms. Keeperofbandages and at my new school some staff members will tell students go to see Ms. Katie (not my real first name) or Ms. Keeperofbandages.  My old school was 6-8 and now i'm at a K-8.  Some staff also go by Mrs. (First name) or by Mrs. ( Last Name).

Mr. OldDude

Occasionally I'll get a "nurse," to which I respond, "yes student?"

With my Kinders I'll answer to nurse but also explain to them that my name is Ms. Keeperofbandages and that usually works unless they are really upset over something.  It's my older student's who I have an issue with...

I'm Mrs. First Name. Some will call me Nurse First Name and some teachers will as well. I don't care for it, but hey, it's polite. 

Had one come in this morning and say "Hey, Mrs. Oy" as in, a nickname for my first name. Try again kid.

Most all students call me Mrs. LastName, except the littles who haven't learned it yet.   Every once in awhile I'll get a "NurseLastName", but not too often.  Having 3 kids of my own here, there are more than a handful of kids that know me well enough and call me by my first name.   They are never disrespectful about it, so its ok by me.

Here in Prek-7 world it's Nurse Ruby Jane. But we address each other by Mr.Ms/ Last Name here. Even if we like each other.

I refer to myself as Nurse First Name.

Some of my other Titles:

*Nurse Last Name

*Nurse

*Just Last Name (this is usually just used by my Superintendent or Principal)

I will honestly answer to all of them. As long as it's not an ugly name, I don't mind the different titles 🤗

My frequent name for summoning my attention is "MISS!"

Or "nurse". I have a huge sign above my head that says "Nurse Lastname" but hardly any students call me that. Only my regulars who are in here for meds everyday.

Several of my high school kids call me “nurse lady” which I just roll my eyes to. Then they try again with Nurse first name. Some just call me by my first name, with a Miss added in.

Both the district RN and I go by nurse- first name or miss- first name. I do have some teachers refer to me as Mrs last name. I have some students that just refer to me as nurse, but I'm ok with that since I'm only at their school 2 half days a week for the most part. I am also referred to as daughter's name mom. The littles occasional call me teacher. I do not respond to hey, I am grumpy if they just sit and stare at me, except maybe tk or k because they are usually nervous. I also do not respond well to "you need to ..... "(call my mom, give me a bandaid. etc). I'm pretty easy, if they are trying to be polite and respectful I'm good.
