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.

Title: The Rings At Pooh Corner by Speaker to Customers
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 7]
Summary: A crossover between The Lord of the Rings, the Winnie the Pooh stories of A A Milne, and Twilight; inspired by the purchase of Lotrfanfiction.com by Keith Mander.
