Ellen DeGeneres has surprise for gay teacher who used RuPaul’s Drag Race term in fake spelling test

This time it was fourth grade teacher Joe Dombrowski’s turn to be surprised.

Dombrowski was invited onto The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday after a video showing him giving a prank spelling bee to his students on April Fool’s Day went viral with more than 20 million views.

‘They’re going to remember you,’ DeGeneres told Dombrowski who teaches in Royal Oak, Michigan.

She jokingly added: ‘I don’t know that you’re teaching anything but I think it’s good that you’re funny.’

One of the made up words was a play on RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants: ‘Ro-laska-tox.’

He gave this example to the students: ‘Ro-laska-tox was surprised when Jinkx took the crown’ and added: ‘If you didn’t get the hyphens, I’m sorry you got that word wrong.’

Dombrowski’s humor is much appreciated by DeGeneres who presented him with two $10,000 checks – one to use on his students and the other to spend on himself.

Explained the teacher: ‘I like to make sure the kids are having fun and like what they’re doing. If they’re laughing they’re going to remember.’
