Were you a good speller in school?
Yes I was a good speller and still consider myself one!
What was the toughest word you ever had to spell?
I don't remember a particularly tough word, but I do remember when I was in 2nd grade I couldn't pronounce 'division' - I used to say 'dijivan'!
What's your favourite English word?
‘Controversy’. I guess for obvious reasons!
Any message for the young spellers you will meet on December 8?
Be happy, stay calm and keep that smile on and you have won the battle! That’s my mantra for anything in life.
