Beautiful. From the well-chosen title to the final word I was mesmerised. You well captured the ambivalence of the pupil who hates the subject and loves the teacher. ANd a great message. Really spot on. Loved it.
I like the first person here. I could certainly identify with her fear of Algebra. Your story makes a good point: we're not good at everything...and that's okay.
I can certainly identify with the main character and I'm sure teens can, also. Very good story that drew me right into the classroom with your main character!
Great ending!
Boy, could I relate, as I'm sure many readers can. Love the way you described the classroom and that wonderful teacher. He's such a treasure. Great ending with a great message.
I wish my math teacher had been so understanding! Good story.
Amazing character development and description. This was absolutely riveting. Loved the end especially.
This is an awesome story. After I read a piece, I like to stop a minute and reflect on what I've read. Yes, your descriptions and your explanations were so clear that I could see the student and teacher right in front of me. Great job. And I never got algebra eitherg!
Looks like I don't do so well with English either grrr.
Wow! I love the way you use comparisons and your descriptions and detail are right on. I felt as if I was right there in the classroom viewing the teacher and the blackboards,etc.I wanted more, this could be a movie with some added stoyline and action. Well done!God bless your gift.Janice
Congrats - an amazing story so well-deserving of its EC placing!
