I am informed that generally if the teacher’s children are also students, then within the school they are considered to be just another student as far as address. The teacher’s son would be “Shi Xiong” (師 兄 = senior brother) or “Shi Di” (師  = younger brother) depending on his relative seniority where Shi (師) = teacher.

A teacher’s brother is a “nobody” if they do not train in martial arts and are generally not addressed in any special way. If they are a martial artist though, then they would be a “Shi Shu” (師 叔 = teacher-uncle).

The teacher’s daughter would be “Shi Jei ” (師 姐  = senior sister) or “Shi Mei” (師  = younger sister) depending on her relative seniority.

A teacher’s sister is a “nobody” if they do not train in martial arts and are generally not addressed in any special way, albeit very politely. If they are a martial artist though, then they would be a “Shi Ayi” (師 姨 teacher-aunt).
