Please tell me this is a joke...

I start TAing next week. So, this week I'm getting all my stuff prepared.

I got my class lists yesterday. I made my attendance sheets tonight.

I have 15 students in one class, 18 in the other.

In the class with 18 students, I have three Kristen's, three Kirsten's and a Kristine.

I am horrible with names to begin with.

Please tell me this is a joke.

Hahaha!! Are you serious?! That's just plain nuts!! As if they couldn't have dispersed those kids into a few other classrooms. Wow! Good luck! I'm not hot with names either, I don't blame you!

Gwen said...

I could tell you that it was a joke, but I'd be lying. I guess that versions of that name were popular that year.

Oh my! I really hope it is! If you keep them straight, you're a better woman than me!

Lindsey Carver said...

I believe it! This past year I not only had two Mason's, but their last names both started with a B. It can be frustrating! I'm sure they'll answer to anything close. ;)

Oh Lucy, I'd be screwed. I don't even get my own kids' names right. I go through the whole list, even the dogs' name sometimes.
What fun though. Show 'em who's boss and don't let them eat ya' alive. ;) Kidding of course. Sorta. I hope.

Hahahahahaha! The joy of TAing! this wide variation of Kristine, Kerstin, etc might be really hard...

Good luck for this! You will succeed.

When I was a TA, my problem was all the name I could not even pronounce...

Meg said...

Ahahaha...that's horrible! Hope it goes okay. ;) when I was younger I played softball on a team with 3 Megan's, a Magen, and a Regan. We also have a Leanna and a Briana! I'm not all that great with names either. :\
