    Spell

    I am good with numbers and bad with letters. I was not always like this tho. In grade school I came in either first or second in all the school spelling bees.They always included grades 1 thru 5. Usually it came down to me and my older sister.

    Horrible Speller

    I know I am a horrible speller. Good thing that there is spell check! I always get bugged for my bad spelling mistakes but I know I am getting better!

    Spell Check!!! I used to be really good at

    spelling, that was before blackberry, smart phones and androids. But now I spell everything wrong on purpose jus because I know Spell Check would sort it all out for me. You should have seen this post without all the corrections. Haha

    Guilty As Charged

    The worst part about being a bad speller is that I am a middle school teacher.  This means everyday I get called out by a bunch of 12 years olds on my horrible spelling.  However, I use my spelling inability as a way to teach my students that spelling isn't everything...

    Spelling Bees
