Grammar is more than just knowing how to spell words correctly. It's about understanding several variables in order to communicate a thought. Knowing things such as a noun representing a person, place, or thing is key to becoming successful in the world! In fact, Maxine Kumin, an American poet, once spoke about the lack of knowledge when it comes to this subject matter by saying how, "The thing that's depressing is teaching graduate students today and discovering that they don't know simple elemental facts of grammar. They really do not know how to scan a line; they've never been taught to scan a line. Many of them don't know the difference between 'lie' and 'lay,' let alone 'its' and 'it's.' And they're in graduate school!" Do you agree with her opinion? If so, the time has come to show how you are in the 1%!

Another brilliant women, Ellen Ochoa a former American astronaut, spoke about this subject when she said, "I was always drawn to teachers who made class interesting. In high school, I enjoyed my American and English literature classes because my teachers, Jeanne Dorsey, and Dani Barton, created an environment where interaction was important." We all have that one teacher who inspires us as we are growing up to be better and do better. Does a specific teacher come to mind when you think of the past? Is there someone who taught you your the "grammar" ropes?

Well, welcome, because the time has come! If you truly believe you're a grammar expert, now is your chance to find out! Good luck!
