I teach a student let’s call Mike. Today Mike’s dad emailed me to set up a meeting and I said “Sure!” Then I checked in with a few people who said I should ask for an extra person in the meeting. Okay, cool. So I spent all afternoon worrying about this meeting.
Then after tutorial one of my freshman’s dad is picking him up and he walks in to talk to me. I have a quick chat with him but I am well aware that I have another meeting like this exact moment. But it’s cool cause that parent is late.
Anyways, after that meeting my AP and I walk up to the front thinking we’ll meet the parent there. When he’s not there 20 minutes late I check my email. “Where’s the email?” Then I find it. You know what the student whose dad I just talked to’s name was? Mike.
I had confused my two students with the same name and worked my self up to a tizzy about a meeting that was SOOOO easy. Also, I worked like 4 other people up, too.
