Seriously. I don't run a very formal class. If we do play formal for some reason, with all the frills and whistles, then 'sensei' is fine. I don't like it overused and don't really feel comfortable with it.

Of course, right now, it's only Emily and I and she occasionally slips and calls me "Sweetie" ...
