She Once Played Teacher, Now She Is One


Not sooo long ago, when she was a little girl, my student teacher played dress up. She pretended she was a princess. She pretended to be a mommy and play with dolls. She also pretended she was a teacher in charge of her own classroom. In a few short weeks she will graduate as a teacher! And a naturally gifted teacher she is! Below, fit with professional (although uncomfortable looking) dress shoes, she is all grown up and ready to take on the professional world of education! Ironically, she has been teaching on Team Star for the past month and half! Did she get the tattoo of a star because she loved her time at school so much? Did I inspire her teaching so greatly that she never wanted to forget the teachers and students that she worked with? That would make a great story, however, the tattoo was already on her foot!

Below, I practiced with some filters and discovered a way to highlight that star and the shoe. I like it! For me, back to work on Friday! I once again take the lead in molding the future minds of America. God help us!

OMG I LOVE THIS ENTRY. I love the 2nd pic and how it highlights the tattoo. I would totally funny if she the tatto because she loved our team. Oh well I guess we just have to stick with our fantasy. Great work and keep it up.

Great story!!! Your writing enhanced the meaning and enjoyment of your lovely photos. It was clever of you to include the first image to go along with your story. The tattoo added interest (Linda will be jealous!)...and I loved the manipulated image you created. Grade: A+

What a great post. I really feel that, not only are we stretching/growing as photographers, but as story tellers. Sometimes "the picture is worth a thousand words" doesn't work unless there are "a few words" to go along with it. Nice job and what a great tribute to your student teacher.

Okay I'm commenting now! I love the poofy slipper transformed into the young woman's foot:) The last filter is very appeasing as well and adds another facet to the tattoo. Sorry I got distracted. Can't wait to see what you come up with today:)
