I am MRS. Telesco**! Not "Miss" or anything else. I worked VERY HARD to become MRS. Telesco, so that's what you'd better call me!(insert wavy, flash-forward video here)*
OK, maybe I didn't work very hard to "earn" my title, but I definitely prefer "Mrs." or "Ms." AND I HAVE NO CLUE WHY! Am I just being an old fart about this? "Mrs." appears on my name badge and on my door. I sometimes refer to myself in the third person with "Mrs." I made my preference clear during the first week of school. Are kids just lazy? Do they not understand the importance of calling people what they prefer? I make quite an effort to call kids what they like, even if they're just temporarily trying out a new nickname for themselves. I insist that we spell each other's names correctly.
On another note, while I probably won't be posting every day (it's that month where you're supposed to write a novel and blogging is the closest I'll ever get), you might get some weirdness from me this month. Just because.
* There's no budget for video. Use your imagination. I'm thinking something along the lines of "Wayne's World" would be appropriate.
** Mrs. Telesco was my Home Ec. teacher in middle school. What she lacked in physical stature she made up for in attitude. And I still don't know how to thread a sewing machine, despite her incredibly patient efforts to teach me.
