My secondary school was quite formal so we used "sir" and "miss". But at sixth form (high school) we use Mr/Miss________

Mr., Mrs., and Ms. are all I ever use.

I know in some private academy schools it's different.

Here we just call teachers by "Teacher", I've never heard in my country someone referring to a teacher in some other way, sometimes if there could be confusion we would say "Teacher (Name)".
I think the reasoning behind not calling them sir. or with anything before their name is because of the soviet union, because it would remind the German times when Latvians and other nations were the servants and farmers while Germans were the noble ones. But in Soviet times everyone was equal so why should someone be named higher than someone else.
In conclusion, I can' t really comment on whether it's right or wrong. I think that some boys might find it funny is because it seems like an old time thing to say.

This has been my experience too, very few I've had have let it slip if you call the mr/mrs unless you are quite close to the teacher.

I've always called my teachers Mr. Mrs. or Miss, then last name. Just started high school this year and it still seems to be the same.

My school uses Mr. Ms. or Mrs. as the proper title. We do have a school within the district that, as a form of community, requires students to call their teachers by their first name. I could not handle that. First names are used to reference friends. I don't even call my friends parents by their first name.

Since I was a little kid my parents taught me to address all non-relative adults as Mister (Sir) or Ms. (Ma'am). At my school the Handbook tells us to address our teachers in the same fashion. We can't address the teachers by their first or last names.

I know plenty of professors and teachers who like to be called sir or ma'am, and plenty who would think you're being sarcastic or cute with him.

Ever since I started studying I called all my teachers/professors "Sir" or "Ma'am" except ones that I'm really close with to the point we'd call each other in a nickname-basis.



I was Artful before, come hit me up.

I usually address my teachers as Mr. or Mrs. because it's out of respect for them.
