    Default Which Label is more aorrect?

    Hello all,
    I'm in charge of posting some labels in my school. I need to put a sign on the teachers' office door. Which one is more appropriate?

    Teachers Office
    Or
    Teachers' Office

    Thanks a lot.

    Default Re: Which Label is more aorrect?

    Hello Najma, welcome to the forum!

    I would put Teachers' Office, if several teachers are to be found there.

    Punctuation can look very unattractive, on signs; but if you omit the apostrophe, in the context of "teachers", people will never stop mentioning it.

    Best wishes,

    MrP
