Teacher of the Year

Day 4, using a prompt from Touchstones Creative Writing Group “Unreliable Narrators”

In year 9
She was Teacher of the year
Best in the country
My English teacher

Learning the text
Structure and spelling
Not creative feeling
My English teacher

Marking my words
Staining with red ink
Not seeing my story
My English Teacher

Dismissing backward letters
Ignoring errors
How did she win?
My English Teacher.

  1. Ah yes, the English teach. If only they encouraged and inspired more than they used their red pen. Thanks for sharing.
