Exceptional Elementary Educator Extraordinaire!

I believe strongly in constantly expanding one's vocabulary as it subtly shows your education. A vocabulary is the "meat-and-potatoes" for communication and obtaining knowledge. Having an extensive vocabulary is a common denominator in being able to comprehend a certain language as well as write and speak that specific language, such as English, for example. Also, for those preparing for their SAT exam or ACT exam, one of the sections is writing and having a good vocabulary will help a student in diction, grammar and usage. Reading helps increase a student's vocabulary, too. [more]
