What's My Name?

I've been called quite a few things in my life- some of them I'd like to be remembered by and some of them I shan't repeat. However, as a middle school teacher I have never received such a variety of names before. Below is a partial list:
  • Mr. Benny
  • Homeslice
  • Professor
  • Mr. Man (this student totally forgot my name and in a moment of panic just blurted out- "Excuse me Mr. Man!")
  • Shaggy
  • Mr. Margolis (another teacher at my school who looks nothing like me except for lankiness and skin color.)
  • Senor Bennett
All of these names have been received with gratitude. There's really nothing quite like being a middle school teacher for a living.
