RE: yes ma'am

Respect can be shown in some unusual ways. I am often called "Hey,
Peshette" by some of my favorite at-risk students. I know that they are
doing it out of a space of being comfortable with me, my room and my
expectations. In these cases, I don't mind. I often answer with "Yah,
dude?" I can instantly tell when my last name being used in a disrespectful
way and then I'm all over that kid!

Considering what some kids COULD do with my last name; I'm grateful to be
called "Hey, Peshette" at times!

My students always call me "Miss". Some of the other teachers seem to think
it's disrespectful that they don't say "Miss whatever" but I am thankful
they call me "Miss" instead of some of the other things I have been called!
