Good spelling is always an asset for a teacher. And first impressions are the most important.

Another thing that's useful for teachers to know is that in English, it is the convention to put a space after each sentence before beginning the next.

We all make typos; my iPad frequently betrays me. But never underestimate those first impressions!

The same when interviewing a person. I make up my mind after the first 2 minutes and 2 questions ( fair enough I interview Chefs and not -highly qualified specialists-). And very,very seldom was I wrong with my judgement.

I am totally with rus!
A typo is a typo, a checked text is different story.
My comp doesn't like when I'm writing in Swedish, my recipients do not expect anything less but a clear and properly written text. It's not much of an effort to check and change, but it's worth it.
