Our first assignment in Digital Photography was a self portrait inspired by American Express ads from 2008 like Tina Fey’s. Each kid Photoshopped a picture of themself with his/her answers to the little survey. Here’s mine.
Photographer: Christie Andrews (actually, the photographer was a rowdy kid in 7th period and I am telling him to please put the camera away and get ready for the bell to ring, but I felt this one was a good one to print and hang on my door. It says, “Don’t give me hell,” don’t you think?)
Graduation Year: wouldn’t you like to know?
Greatest Ambition: to be a good mom (Last year I wrote ‘to be as good a mom as mine’ and little did I know I’d get the opportunity in a matter of months!)
Proudest Accomplishment: being responsible for one half of the WORLD’S CUTEST BABY!
Perfect Day: a thunder and rainclouds, read-a-book day
Can’t live without: Harry Potter (books)
Favorite song: ‘Your Hand in Mine’ by Explosions in the Sky
Quote to live by: “When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead.” Neil Patrick Harris
Best friend: my husband
Reason why I like Photography: It gives you the power to freeze time.
Don’t let the picture fool you, I. LOVE. MY. JOB. It’s amazing that I get paid to do this. I’m really excited about this year – I have inspiring, entertaining, creative and thoughtful kids, and I have a senior assistant to do my bidding. I love being a coach’s wife because it provides yet another connection I can have with my students. I am really, really excited about his year.
Everyone needs to check our Art Dept. blog regularly to see what we’re up to – I think we are going to have some stunning work created this year. **Link should be fixed now!**
Life couldn’t be better!
