Ms. or Miss?

Good morning blog friends!

My school is ordering a name plate for me and wants to know what title I want to go under. I am currently unmarried and I'm unsure of which title I should use. Miss seems like it is for young girls and Ms. seems professional but also seems like you might be divorced. What title do you use in school?


  1. Hey! I just Googled it! From what I read, Miss = unmarried and Ms. = unspecified marital status. Ms. can also be used for those who are divorced. My first year teaching I was not married and I used Ms. because, like you said, Miss does seem like a younger title. Hope this was helpful and I hope you get more responses!

  2. My first year teaching I wasn't married, and I went by Miss...Ms. sounded old to me, and I didn't like how it sounded. What do your students call you now? I think it's all personal preference, really. What has a better ring to it for you? :o)

  3. Hey I just found your blog, so I know that this is probably too late to help with your decision. Anyway, I sign my things Miss Snowden. 1. I like it. 2. I want people to know that I am not married and never have been, just in case they have some one they would like to hook me up with! Haha! Just kidding...sort of :).
