Yep, so true. I owe my grasp of grammar to Mrs. Wagoner. 3rd-5th grade would not have been the same without her. Every one has a teacher who helps to mold them into the person they are today. She is one of those people. Not only would she not even acknowledge your presence if you asked a question containing a grammatical error, but she taught us to be good writers. Having her for English for three years during primary school gave me the confidence I needed to succeed as I grew older. I knew I was a strong writer and I have carried that with me ever since. And she taught me some mad typing skills too. I don't know how many times I typed "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog." I still remember it, so probably a lot. Her class is proof that advanced placement/gifted programs at the elementary level truly do make an impact on students. Without her, I wouldn't be winning debates by default...and so many other things.
