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.

I am a middle school Intensive Reading and Medical Science teacher. I am a lifelong fan of Tolkien, having read the series,Book of Lost Tales I & II, The Silmarillion, and The Children of Hurin.

In addition to teaching, a semi-pro photographer and run my own outdoor lifestyle website. I love doing almost anything outdoors.

I believe that to really be able to teach others how to do something, you must be able to do it yourself, so I started writing a story when I was given a Gifted Language Arts class where I could truly teach the craft of writing, not just the mechanics of writing. I am really kind of new to "true" story writing, but I have learned so much during my endeavors.

What a wonderful journey it has been for me!
