No matter what job you are assigned to, grammar is a basic skill that should be used in your everyday lives. I read the article from Kyle Wiens, “I Won’t Hire People Who Use Poor Grammar.” The article is about how great grammar gives a good impression and improves how you work. Grammar is vital even if the job does not seem to require much of it. Good grammar shows your intelligence. I would want to work with people who can speak properly because I can understand them better. If you are foreign and your native language isn’t English, or you have a reading disability then that is an excuse. However, if you have none of those problems there should be no trouble speaking properly. Your grammar can give you credibility online and in real life. All you can do is type text online in posts and people will judge that. Grammar is truly essential in your life!
People who do well in their grammar tend to pay more attention to details and their performance on things unrelated to writing. It is shown that a person who doesn’t think writing is vital, they will think other things are not important. I immensely care about my grammar. I noticed that it also helps me notice how neat things are and more. Proper grammar is a way to give a good impression on people. It is a good practice to do when you are young, so you get used to it when you are an adult applying for a job. Grammar is a skill you constantly learn in school, therefore it is common sense that you should speak it correctly. If you think grammar isn’t significant, then you may want to reconsider your thoughts.

St. Gabriel Independence Mission School

A new group of students has entered my classroom to begin my 40th year of teaching. Every class that I've had through the years has been a unique group of kids. I am extremely excited to continue this journey with the Class of 2015 - We're Living the Dream!
