I've been working with a third grader after school trying to get him ready for fourth grade next year. His grandma already told me she's going to ask for him to be in my class. 

Yesterday afternoon another staff member mentioned that his mom went to our school. As soon as she said the mom's name it hit me... I taught his mom. I looked back at the class pictures and sure enough she was in my class my second year teaching. 

I taught one of my son's classmate's father. I thought he would be first child of a student I might teach. I also thought I had a couple of more years before I'd be an old woman!

:) The guy who gives my son drum lessons was my band teacher my senior year in high school. He is only a few years older than me, but he said he always knew this would happen one day.

Some people are but that's certainly not the norm these days.

When my mom had me having a kid in your early 20's was totally normal. When my oldest was in Kindergarten I got asked at LEAST once a week if I was her older sister or nanny. I was the only mom in that class that wasn't in their late 30's to mid 40's. It seems that the "norm" these days is waiting until you see menopause walking down the street to have kids.

Quoting kmrtigger: Nah! They just popping out kids much younger these days...

I won't have the opportunity to make any of my previous teachers feel old, many of them aren't teaching anymore, and we don't live in my hometown. LOL.

My third grade teacher is a reading teacher now at my kids school and she has my littke one. I was really surprised she recognized me all these years later but years ago when my oldest was in a meeting she came up to me. I'd seen her before but it hadnt clicked who she was until she came up to me as we don't live in same city I grew up in.

My son had my first grade teacher as his. My daughter has a few teachers I had and her principle was my gym teacher. It happens. I was 24 when she was born so I wasn't that young.
