    Default whatd'yacall'em?

    So, at your school, what are the following called? (Yes, I did leave my dictionary at work - so please help me out here):
    1. Cafeteria staff
    2. Maintenance staff
    3. School nurse
    4. Gardening staff
    This is for the newbs in August, so sensible answers onegai.

    Interesting! My school has no maintenance staff nor garden staff. The gardening staff appear to be one office lady and kocho-sensei. And the school nurse is not here most days.

    Just looked at my school's website, and this is what they call them:

    Cafeteria staff: chouri-in (though I just call them kyuushoku no hitotachi, lunch people.)

    School nurse: yougo kyouron, though I hear "hoken no sensei" far more often at school. Most people (teachers and students) seem to just use her name.

    Maintenance staff/Gardening staff: We have one guy who does both. His official title is youmu-in, but again most people seem to just use his name.

    Slightly off topic, the bastards still have my pred's name as the ALT, even though I've been here nearly a year. I know the site hardly ever gets updated, but still.
