Great story and great writing. Thank you for this entry. God bless.
Great job on your story. I loved the prim and proper teacher who had the heart of gold.

Sister Marie has a big heart hidden behind her stern demeanor. Well written and enjoyable read.
As a former English teacher, I loved your story with the indefatigable teacher (I loved her!) --right on topic with great characterization and plot, as well as humor.
From she did not smile, to a weak smile to a happy smile of satisfaction the transition was lively. This reminded me of my English teacher named Sister Mary Lobo. You captured the topic well. Great work.
This is a great story. I loved your MC. The first few paragraphs were a bit slow for me. I think it was because they were all telling no showing. While some of the back story is important, if you can sprinkle it throughout the story, you'll capture and keep your readers' attention. When you started the part with dialog and actions, you really drew me in. Your MC melted my heart.

Congratulations on your win. Your story took me back to my eighth grade classroom and the Nun we called the Little White Tornado. I honestly can't remember her real name. And then there was the Principal, Sister Lucinda. Your MC could have easily been either of the two women from my memories. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Congratulations, LeslieJean, on your 1st place EC award. I knew it was a winner the first time I read it.
Congrats on your 1st place EC win.
This reminds me of my childhood Catholic school, most feared nun - Sr. Joan Marion. I swear she was a linebacker before entering the convent! Thanks for the memories.

Nice story. Is it a fiction or a real case?
