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.

I was a maths teacher too! A really soul-destroying job sometimes, because many children arrived at school already afraid of the subject.

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.

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.

Most of my teachers were lovely - there were just a couple that were not nice.

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.

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 :(

Spiced, what a horrible experience about that teacher! That would drive anybody off the subject, I'd imagine.

Extracts from Erestor's Library Catalogue by Himring Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 0]
Summary:


Erestor tries hard to keep track of Rivendell's growing number of books. It can be a bit of a struggle, especially in March.


Recommended by: Himring
Recommender's comments:

This is a catalogue of fictional books added to Rivendell's library in fan fic, with names of authors and links to the stories, as well as details on the books (and a little snark by Erestor).

So it's basically a rec list for stories that feature invented books!

Most of the stories are from Back to Middle Earth Months 2015 and 2016, but it's a WIP.

Escaping Isengard by Zoop Rated: Mature [Reviews - -18]
Summary: At the end of despair, when all hope has faded, a woman facing the last moments of her life finds the will to survive rekindled by one whose kind robbed her of it to begin with. Now she must decide which evil is the lesser: stay with the beast, or risk worse by leaving him. She soon finds that the horrors she faced in Isengard were not reserved for those in the breeding pits alone.
Recommended by: Quantumphysica
Recommender's comments: This story is awesome and refreshingly original...
Featuring a Rohirrim woman enslaved by Saruman to serve in the "Breeding Pits" for the creation of his Uruk-Hai, and an Uruk who turns out to be far more than a monster, it has an unlikely cast but tells a surprisingly touching tale...
Also, I have to note that this story features a good amount of Black Speech expressions, for which I am the author eternally grateful. ;)
