Q: Any of your students have hilarious English names?

In one class: Eternal Dawn
In the same class: a guy called Happy, another called Sad
In another: Rainbow

Even some of the younger Chinese English teachers chose 'wisely'. I did a double-take when one of them introduced herself as 'Apple'

Some boy names: Endless Night, Hulk (and he was 156cm tall), Jizz, Veedee(VD), Hymen

Girl names: Easy, Twink, Taint, Poopy, Lawanda

On a sidenote, everytime I encounter a student with an English name referring to "intelligence", these students are the most idiotic: Smart, Genius, Brain, and Einstein were some of the dumbest students I've had.

  I had one 9 year old student this week who'd decided to make a name change to Vanessa, which is not such a funny name in itself, except that the student in question is a boy. I was tempted to slap young Vanessa on the back and tell him 'good choice' but I didn't have the heart.

Echo is common. It comes and goes.

 

We have blue, green, Elvis, summer, holiday, big red, small red, and a little old lady. My daughter is little orange, her friend is big Apple. Too many names. I can't keep up.

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
