Who Am I?

author Ann Richmond Fisher

I'm Ann Richmond Fisher, longtime author, former classroom teacher, and owner of Spelling-Words-Well.com and Word-Game-World.com.

In correspondence with a number of school officials and spelling bee organizers, I was asked to compile this list of difficult bee words to be used in the final rounds of all-school competitions. Because of the hours and hours required to compile the list, I wanted to make it available to you, too.

I've worked closely with community groups, large school systems and small schools to help them successfully put on Spelling Bees. Using my Spelling Bee Toolbox books, you can do the same!
