my little teaching-habit is that i always call my students "ma'am" and "sir" when i address them.

i like that very much. then it's all around respectful rather than i-am-the-big-powerful-teacher-lady-so-respect-my-authority.

i've thought about calling students by Miss/Mr. and last name too. i observed a teacher doing that a few years ago, and the kids really responded. it seems awfully formal which i shy from, but if i show them that respect then maybe they'll show me respect back. i think i was a bit too cuddly, friendly during student teaching. want to draw boundaries more.

are you back home? i've waited for brad's butt for a whole week (although, i could wait longer. he's not really my type--altogether too blond). maybe we could take mary out and cheer her up.

yup - i got home last night. it was a fun trip but i am so tired - i think i need a vacation to recover from vacation. i am all for a movie night. i have something tuesday night - but beyond that i am free.
