Use your married name if you are changing it. There is no need to explain anything to parents and if they ask you can just say you are getting married. 18 days in, there probably won’t be that many questions that come up.

Use your new name the whole year. Your marital status shouldn’t really matter to anyone and it’s less confusing for the students if it doesn’t change.

@Bla_101:  Yes. Begin the school year with your married name and have parents/students call you that. Your students will probably be vaguely interested in your wedding but most likely anything having to do with your name will just be lost on them, i.e. it’s not something they will most likely even have a question about if you use your married name from the beginning.

I agree – start the year with your new last name so the kids/parents won’t get confused! Plus, it’ll give you time to get used to it. 😀
