Fun Friday ~ Did I Really Do That???

I'm hoping this Fun Friday post finds you out of school, or at least VERY, VERY close to it!

I shared a picture on my Making It As A Middle School Teacher Facebook wall yesterday that got quite a few likes and comments.

I thought I'd share it here with you today...

I have had so many students do this over the years...especially boys it seems.  I think it's very sweet {and a little funny as well}!!!

What have your students called you {that you can repeat}?

I'd love to hear your story!  Leave me a comment below.

Enjoy :)

  1. Yep, when I get the mom comment I joke with them that I'm kind of like their mom at school.

  2. HAHA! Funny, I've had a big ole handful of 8th graders do it to call me mom over the years!
    They are so darn cute when they realize it too!

  3. I've been called Mom many times, other teachers's names often, and even Grandma once in a while. (What can I say, I am old.) I smiled each time and used my favorite line: Just call your mom/grandma/other teacher Ms. Me every once in a while and we'll be even.

    But when the kid called me Grandpa, I drew the line. LOL

  4. This just made my day a little better. I have been called mom sooo many time by my little firsties, but I have also been called grandma. That one I was like "huh?" I am only 21 and according to many look younger than that. Not sure where the grandma thing came from. Haha

    My (Not So) Elementary Life

  5. Years ago, when I was in my mid-20s, I had a student (an 8th grader) who was trying to get my attention and after repeating my name many times said "Hey Grandma!" The whole class got very quiet for a moment, he turned bright red, and then we all started laughing and he profusely apologized. I have his younger brother this year who has called me "grandma" a few times as a joke.

  6. When my middle schoolers called me mom, I always replied, "Oh no, you wouldn't want me as your mom would ya?" They always agreed NO. They know I am too strict to be their mom. It always made us laugh though.
