Life in a first grade classroom–still laughing and shaking my head…

11454297503_e27946e4ff_h“Mrs. Hogan!  Mrs. Hogan!  Mrs. Hogan!” my first-grade student exclaimed, “I know everyone’s last name in the classroom except yours.”

“What?” I asked, slightly confused.

“I know everyone’s last name in the class except yours.” he repeated, still grinning with his accomplishment.

“But, B., you just said my last name.” I stated.

“What?” he asked, wrinkling up his nose and tilting his head to look up at me, clearly puzzled.

“You just said my last name,” I repeated, “when you said my name.”

“Mrs. Hogan?” he queried.

“Yes,” I said, “Hogan is my last name.”

“Oh,” he said, “I didn’t know that.”

I’m still shaking my head…and laughing…and shaking my head again…

  1. “Mrs. Hogan” is clearly your given name! Funny. At least that’s how I understood the child’s thinking. I would have liked to have heard how you cleared this up with the student.
