...as a teacher, I keep forgetting my students names, but never faces. I feel like a disabled person and even feel ashamed forgetting their names. My students know it and they can laugh about it, but. Who recognizes this? And how do you cope with it? In all my previous schools I could easily compensate this 'disability' by having their names and photo's at hand. But my new school doesn't provide such a lists. It looks so careless, especially during a parent meeting. The first parent meeting at my new school was after six weeks so I was able to get away with it, because it is understandable not to know all your students names seeing them only twice a month. But with the second meeting coming, I now find myself cutting yearbook classphoto's and gluing them in my notebook, hours and hours work, as to have a proper parents meeting! It is horrible but it is like this! Strangly enough, I do know all their faces and even the art works they made, as a clear picture in my mind. Anyone out here recognizes this. And if so, what are your strategies?
