I wouldn’t confuse kids and parents (and fellow teachers). Just use your married name – it’s only 18 days after all!

As I said in another thread, use your maiden name until you’re married. They’re middle schoolers, not pre schoolers. They know about marriage and name changes. No one will be confused.

Just tell the kids that you’re getting married shortly after school starts, so they can call you by your married name to make things easier.

I agree. OP, I would not ask your class or your students’ parents to call you “Mrs. Hislastname” until after you’re married.
