I suppose they'd have a heart attack if I told them I'm writing fanfic in English these days. *g*

experience like you, Alpha, but with English: two English teachers told me I should try to get a job where I wouldn't need foreign languages as they judged me too little giftd in languages.

My father was a maths teacher, too, which wasn't always easy for me, *g* - my classmates considered it as uncool in a major way to be daugther of a maths teacher. And I made a similar

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.

Female and not as young as I used to be... Much of what I write is part of a long on-going series and is centred on the Elves - mainly of Ithilien. Other stories dot around - sometimes more Elves. And I also have a soft spot for the Rohirrim - but have little stuff here about them... yet!

Title: In The Winter Garden by curiouswombat
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 16]
Summary:

Something very strange is happening in Éowyn's garden. Could Tindómë, or Haldirin, be the key to the mystery?
In the heat of the Ithilien summer Éowyn is finding life quiet with her own family all away from home. But things are not really quite as calm and tranquil as she thinks they are. Nor, necessarily, quite so warm and summery.
A Returnverse story originally written as a Plot Without Porn challenge on Live Journal, and inspired by a photo which you will find in the first chapter.

Title: A Powerful Absence by curiouswombat
Rated: Teen [Reviews - 19]
Summary:

A simple accident leaves Elladan coping with life in Fourth Age Middle Earth without his twin.

Not a Returnverse story, although there is an idea in it that was in the plot line for that series right from the beginning. But, once the first lines of this came into my head, it took my life over for a month or two until I wrote it; and writing it was a bit like giving birth - very painful.

It won 1st place in the Elves; Elrond's family, section of the 2012 MEFAs.
