    Yes, I am a bad speller.

    That is why I use spell checker to check for misspell.

    Well...

    i can spell really well, i just make so many typos that sometimes people do not believe me.  there are a few words that flummox me to spell, but by and large it is just finger errors that get me.

    Terrible Speller

    I was part of an experiment and taught to spell phonically in lower grades.  I really don't think the English language can be spelled that way.  My kids cant read my text messages to them.  I write things in MS Word or Lotus Word Pro because of a spell checker...

    Despite having a degree in English, I am utterly hopeless at spelling. There is nothing more mortifying to me than finding grammatical mistakes and misspelled words in documents, so I am slightly obsessed with ensuring that my spelling is correct. So much so that I can't even...

    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.

    Spelling Bees

    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...
