It is far more likely Julia Roberts' character would go by Professor Tainot than Mrs./Ms. Tainot to her students. She cannot go by Dr., since she earned only a Masters degree, but her title as a college instructor would still be Professor.
Just before the credits switch from Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks to rolling credits on black background, Roberts mouths 'Hi Mom'.
