finally someone made gifs for this
literally white teachers with non-european names tho
saying that as a white teacher myself. I feel so bad when I can’t pronounce a student’s name off the bat, but I at least make it a priority to get it right. Many teachers see non-European names as a threat, and give up on pronouncing it before they even try. These teachers treat students with non-European names as troublemakers that are less educated or intelligent as their peers.
As someone with the name Huvra pronounced HUH-VA-RAH, I have had plenty of experiences where teachers just look at my name and it’s like a little part of their soul has died.TryBeñat on for size when you’ve got a week of different subs every day.
