ziggy 03/28/17 11:13 pm Wow- Naledi- you were Maths!! I am an English teacher and so agree. I am so careful - don't always get it right but try to make sure every interaction is positive. Naledi 03/28/17 12:10 pm I was a maths teacher too! A really soul-destroying job sometimes, because many children arrived at school already afraid of the subject. Naledi 03/28/17 12:08 pm It is sad how a bad teacher can make a child's time at school a misery. When I was teaching I was very conscious that even the most casual, throwaway comment could wound. Alpha Ori 03/28/17 01:08 am Love to meet him today and tell him I studied astronomy. Twit. Alpha Ori 03/28/17 01:07 am I still remember my maths teacher. Pasty faced and smelled of onions. I was traumatised, especially when he told my parents the only thing I was good at was sports. Spiced Wine 03/24/17 02:30 pm Most of my teachers were lovely - there were just a couple that were not nice. ziggy 03/22/17 11:06 pm I hate hearing about teachers who ruined a child's interest or confidence or curiosity- as a teacher myself, it actually hurts to think how someone has done that. It doesn't happen much now. Spiced Wine 03/20/17 10:15 am I was a very quiet student, easily cowed and very much a loner, nevertheless I was a good student, but he was not a nice teacher :( Ysilme 03/19/17 03:00 pm Spiced, what a horrible experience about that teacher! That would drive anybody off the subject, I'd imagine. Ysilme 03/19/17 02:59 pm UnnamedElement, my husband has a doctorate in chemistry, so he might be able to help. *g* Just drop me a note through the PM system here, or at LJ or DW (same name).
