“My name is now May”


I have a Year 10 student whose name is quite difficult to pronounce for your typical  mono lingual pakeha teacher. She is from Thailand.

Shortly before the end of Term 3 she announced her preferred name was May, and her school records were changed accordingly. Sad to say this probably improves the relationship between student and teacher, and later in life it may prove to be an advantage.

It shouldn’t be but it probably is,,,
