I need some help understanding something.
I understand why students should call their teachers by their proper titles, “Ms/Mr. Teacher”.
But could someone explain to me why I need to refer to them by this same title when there are no children around? I’ve had teachers introduce themselves to me, in a kid-free environment, as this title and they weren’t even my child’s teacher.
I, personally, can’t stand titles. To me it’s just another way of putting yourself in a certain class – usually above other people. That being said, I think if you worked your butt off getting a PHd, then by all means you should be referred to as, Dr. Person. But not in a casual environment.
And please note, I’m not talking about highly professional people. Mostly just your average teacher.
I’m willing to be educated…so someone please educate me.
