Always expect the unexpected

The first trimester for the school year 2007-2008 starts today. How’s my first class? It’s fine but I’ve been shocked to know that one of my students is the middle child of our Head Laboratory Coordinator! Ain’t it shocking? What’s worst is that I didn’t recognize the student. His surname is familiar, for that’s also my maiden name, that’s why it catched my attention. When I went back to our deparment, he was there saying “hi” to me. I feel stupid for not having a clue about his being in my class. Now I’m starting to feel the pressure of having a student whose mother is in-charge of checking if the laboratory instructors are doing what they’re asked to do. I just didn’t expect this. Oh well, I think I should get used to it. Ignore this intimidating feeling and focus on my job.
