Good teacher, bad teacher
Some teachers are scary and intimidating while others are great.
I used to go to Girls' College in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
I remember our Deputy Head Master Mr McKenzie. He was such a scary man! He just looked cross the whole time. Thank goodness he didn't teach any of the classes I went to, but every time one would even happen to walk down the same corridor as him, you'd think he's going to snap your head off.
Our headmaster on the other hand, Mr Fuller was like a saint. Lovely friendly face, very approachable and a good example of what our school represented. Maybe it's a good thing HE was the headmaster! :-)Laura
