Alecto let Spencer get settled. "The students, especially sixth and seventh years, often complain that they are treated like children. This will be a perfect opportunity to introduce them to some adult concepts as they pertain to the subject matter. You will help me to select an appropriate title," she announced.
She was certain the ability to choose curriculum, no matter what kind, would appeal to Spencer. It was the very reason she had chosen this "assignment".
She allowed Spencer to get a little ways into the book before Alecto cleared her throat. "Sit straight and feet together, Miss Fawcett," she said in a commanding tone though she didn't look up from her papers; just like the sort of discipline the secretary was subject to in the novel.
