What does it mean when a teacher calls you “hun, honey, sweetie, dear”etc ? ?

I hated that when my elementary and middle school teachers did that! I don’t like being called nicknames, like call me by my name. I still found it nice. Why do teachers do that to students?

    Some girls are hooked to loving children

    And speak in that language. It's annoying

    But better than being verbally beat up by

    A nasty evil teacher. Appreciate the niceness

    She gives and grasp you will eventually be

    Treated very badly by another teacher one

    Day. Life is complicated and made painful

    By evil people.

    It’s not cause they like you it’s cause they don’t know your name

    Sometimes it's a habit, sometimes they mean it, sometimes it's actually used as a means of diminishing someone (either intentionally or unintentionally), but in any case it is unprofessional to use those kinds of affectionate terms to address students.  Teachers need to be friendly but it can be done in a more professional way.
