    Substitute Teacher Who Keeps Mispronouncing Names

    I found this video on YouTube where a substitute teacher keeps reading the students' names (and the principal's as well) wrong (and most of those names should be familiar and obvious ones!).

    ETA: Added a possible warning that there may be some mild bad language in the video.

    SO funny... Jayquellin...This video was the theme of my Canada Day weekend with my friends...We purposely mispronounced everyone's names.

    No kids (yet), not even trying... but, I can't help but dream of beautiful (and ever-changing) names for my future children!

    I had a teacher in fifth grade who was not from our country (United States), and she constantly mispronounced names. No one gave her any trouble about it since she didn't know any better. I think that this kind of thing is understandable and forgivable as long as it is not done on purpose.
