Photo Contest

Recently our director announced a seasonal photo contest for the winning photos to be displayed in the PC office. It all sounded fun and even easy until I read the 'it must be related to your work'. I can capture scenery, cool angles on snowy stuff all day long, but capturing what I 'do' was a lot harder, since I'm in the midst of it all. Because of this initiative, I now have pictures of my students I wouldn't have otherwise taken and I'm thrilled. Although they are not super artsy and I'm not banking on a win, I did want to share with you the pride I have in the work I do and am apart of. I love the young people I work with and I think I've been able to capture quite a bit of JOY, even in Winter!


PS - the end of the week, the weather is proving to be Spring! We have the door open airing the house out right now! Hopefully earlier this week, was the last of the snow...

  1. Glad the contest got you to document some of this stuff, your yourself if not for the grand prize. 8-)

    I really enjoyed seeing these too; it really brings home the work you do and (more importantly) the people you are impacting. Good stuff.

  2. I love this post. Seriously, it helps bring us into a little more of your world. love you friend!

  3. I am much impressed by the decision and also it is necessary to declare if there is no change has been come. I am much thankful to you for sharing a very nice topic.
