Cultural Awareness by Pronouncing Names Correctly #mynamemyid

December 15, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

I cam across this website where you can take a pledge to say other people’s names correctly. As someone with a difficult name it is surprising how many people I correct and they stil pronounce it incorrectly. I could not imagine my first name being hard to pronounce. Take the time to do this. Get your school or community involved.

from the site:

Did you know that pronouncing students’ names correctly is a signal that their names and identities are honored? This can foster a sense of belonging and build positive relationships in the classroom, which are crucial for healthy social, psychological, and educational outcomes. Help us build a culture of respect in our school communities.

    Taking the pledge requires a US zip code and state.
