Went to the middle school campus today to be interviewed by two 8th graders for a math project. This happened during the 7th grade lunch period. I saw a whole bunch of former students in the hallway. Unfortunately, I was confronted with the dreaded “Do you remember my name?” test.
Now those of you who know me are well aware that I have a pretty poor memory….especially with names. And those of you who are teachers are also aware that it absolutely crushes a student when you forget them. Being caught off guard, my brain froze for a nanosecond.
….but only for a nanosecond! Somehow, I miraculously rattled off her first AND last name, AND her favorite food. Her jaw dropped. Seeing that I was “on a roll,” I continued to ask if there were anything else that she wanted to know about herself….
Good job by me.
