I've just found out I teach identical triplets. And not because I noticed or anything, but another teacher told me.

How crap are my observational skills?

To be fair, two of them are in a class I only teach once a week and I didn't do the seating plan so I didn't notice the surnames.

But seriously, that's rubbish!

(Not going to do anything about it or anything. I'm not going to start saying 'ooooh you're a triplet!!' I just thought it was funny I hadn't realised by looking. The other teacher said something about 'the triplets' and I said 'who are they then?' and she said 'well you teach all of them!' grin)

That is funny!

When I was teaching in a secondary school, I once told off a kid for being late and he looked very bemused and muttered something quite rude in response. I was shocked, as I thought he was a delightful child.

It turned out, this had been his identical twin (who, in fairness, had thus not been late) and apparently the twin I didn't know and didn't teach was the evil one and I taught the nice one.

It totally freaked me out at the time, but other teachers thought it hilarious!!

that's really funny grin did you assume it was the same child and wonder why they were scheduled for x three times a week? or were you thinking 'goodness me - it only seems like yesterday she was in the class. i can't believe this week has gone by so fast!'

(or do you need a trip to specsavers?) wink
