Question : I just started school today and my new English teacher told us we will be writing stories tomorrow and I want to make a good impression. Any tips for writing would be greatly appreciated. Btw I am 15 and I generally excell at English, its just that I am not great at writing stories.
Answer : I really only have one major tip for you.
Plan out your story before you start.
Come up with the basic Who, What, Where, When, Why, How.
Make a list of your main characters, and decide relationships between them (for example, Father, friend, doesn't know yet).
It's easy to get side tracked while writing, and that will make your story very weak. If you have a planned out story and good grammar/punctuations, I'm sure your teacher will notice!

Question : I going into High School and I'm writing Thank You letters to all my teachers. I have this one teacher that I really don't like b/c he makes me feel uncomfortable. I don't want to write him a thank you letter, but it would be rude not to. so...what do i say?
thank you for all your help!
Answer : like the attitude!
you're correct, it would be rude if you are writing to ALL the other teachers, & it would probably be noticed, so:
If you aren't writing to all your teachers, but to most, then you would be justified in including him in that smaller bunch. the reason if asked could be, 'I will SAY thank you to all my teachers since they all made a difference to me, but I will WRITE to the teachers who made a massive difference.'
if no one asks, no probs, if someone asks, but it gets to the last day & you have just been too busy, ah well. move on.
if you truly are writing to all teachers, then just make it a short but polite one, 'thank you for teaching me', & if you don't want to hand it to him personally, leave it either at the staffroom to be put in his pigeonhole, or at the office/admin/reception, possibly with another one, because 'you aren't being taught by him/them before you leave', i.e some reason like that. No one will notice or be bothered, you're saying thank yo..
