    Sorry sir, wait also do teachers like being called by Sir? And what do you guys talk about in that staffroom?
    Its ok, I had girls giggling and making comments at the start of my teaching career but that stopped pretty quick because I am quite confident and direct.

    With Sir, we have this thing in our school where the teachers call each other Sir and Miss in front of students.

    Some students call me Sir, definitely the ones from the respectful backgrounds with middle to upper class upbringings. Some students address me with 'yo man' 'my g' etc and some of them call me by my first name as if they were my friend.

    The staff room is a bit of a problem for me, I don't really go in there. There's no one really my age and the teachers there kind of treat me like a student as well. They talk about things like taking their kids to the doctors, current events etc which don't really interest me.

    If I am ever in the staff room I'm normally just on my phone but most of the time I spend my time in the maths department or walking through the playground to get fresh air if its a nice day. Some breaks and lunches I spend marking or lesson planning.

    I don't know if I should be saying this but *some* teachers swear hard and they do talk about the students. If one student or class was terrible, they would come in and say oh so and so what a terrible piece of character he/she is, pathetic.

    With me I don't backchat on the students, I could have gone into higher paying fields but chose teaching to make a difference. So I'm not going to sit there and say how terrible students are, rather I would want to have a positive impact in the classroom.

    At A Level or uni, I wouldn't see a big issue.

    At GCSE probably not.
