Please help me change my name!
Hi! My name is Spencer, at least, I hope it will be soon!
I’m transgender, and I just started at a new school. I really like it there, the only problem is my name. Currently, all my documents and school records have my given name on them. Since I haven’t been going by that name for over a year now, it makes it very confusing when we have new students, new teachers, or I have to work with other officials within the school district. It’s stressful having to explain, and out myself, when a teacher calls roll, introduces me, or needs me to sign something. My teachers are patient and understanding, but for legal reasons they can’t change my name in the records without a court order.
With the new school year starting, there will be a lot of new students coming to the school, and I would like to have the chance to meet them without the stress or confusion surrounding my name. I’m hoping to raise the money to change it (which in my state is $170) before the new school year starts.
