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.

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).

Silm fic recs: review re-post project by Himring Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - -3]
Summary:

Master list of a review re-post project on LiveJournal I completed in January 2013, which doubles as a list of Silm fic recs.
I re-posted one of my longer reviews per author. The earliest of these reviews are from the MEFAs in 2010, which means that the work reviewed is all fairly recent. The selection is rather idiosyncratic and a couple of the stories are perhaps only marginally Silm fic, but I can vouch for it that the stories are all excellent!
