An enchanting 14 year old African American girl named Zaila Avant-garde from New Orleans won the Scripps National Spelling Bee!
It is not enough that she is a consummate speller, but she also wants to be a WNBA player and join NASA. My bet is on Zaila!
Spelling is important for several reasons:
spelling is a critical component of communication
2. spelling and developing reading skills are closely linked
3. spelling as a skill directly impacts on employment
Teach your children to love reading, help then learn to spell correctly and find the right school that values reading, writing and arithmetic. And find a school that believes in social justice and that your child can be anything they want to be!
