It's so funny to me when a student find out my first name. It's as if they go around thinking my first name really is "Miss". Today another teacher came in my room and said, "Hi Shannon." My students looked up in shock, and one said, "Your name is WHAT?! Shannon? That's so weird! Can I call you Shannon?" :) It's as if my secret identity has been taken away. It's still so weird to me because I grew up in a small town where you always knew the teachers' first names. Sometimes I tell my students that I used to babysit for my teachers. "That's so weird! I would never babysit for a teacher!"
