On the DMN‘s Education Blog yesterday, reporter Matthew Haag took Zaragoza Elementary School to task for its outdoor sign. The sign read:
Teachre of the Year
Miss. Salazar Assistance
Teacher of the Year
I drove past Zaragoza Elementary School in Dallas ISD this morning and did a double-take when I saw the school’s sign. Of course, the word is spelled teacher — not “teachre.” And the position is assistant teacher — not “assitance teacher.”
Of course, the word is spelled assistance — not “assitance.”
UPDATE: So I’ve been informed this is technically not a misspelling, since you can’t misspell a misspelled word. Let’s go with, mistranscription?
