Teacher and Author, Timothy Paramourshared a new twist on an old script that every education worker will recognize.
Terrible breaking point at work today. Over the years, children have accidentally called teachers “mom” or “dad” without thinking, causing hilarity. Today, one of my colleagues is called “Alex”.

My high school daughter came home distraught that she called the teacher mom. I reassured her that it was okay – "Yes, but I told Mr. Barnett that!"

I work in the school office. It’s not uncommon for a student to call me mom, BUT last week a TEACHER called me mom! In front of your class! (I am NOT their mom).

My son came home from school last week and called Alexa “Mrs Morrison”.
