How to Create a Great Nickname for a Teacher

Some teachers are so unique they require the special touch only their students, colleagues, or loved ones can provide in coming up with their perfect nickname.

If this sounds like one of the teachers in your life, here are some ideas to help you along the way.

  • Decide as a group. If you’ve got a group of friends or even a whole class that would enjoy coming up with your teacher’s nickname together, have everyone submit an idea and vote on the best one. This way, you get lots of suggestions from the people who know your teacher best, and you’ll have a blast discovering what everyone creates.
  • Make a list of traits. Try making a list of words that describe your teacher and then add Ms./Mr. in front of it to create an excellent nickname for them.
  • Search for puns. Another trick you can try with your list of describing words is to search the internet for puns with each word. You’ll find some hilarious nicknames, and it may spark a fantastic idea or two.
