I have really started thinking about a picture that talks to me about my passions in education. One of the biggest thrills I have is when my students come to school early and want to come into the classroom. One cold winter day eleven students were in my room by 8:30am even though school doesn’t start until 9:00am. One day I decided to take pictures of the students in the room before “school” time. I work in a community school where attendance can be a bit sketchy for some students. I believe that having my room and computers open for students prior to the bell is an incentive for some students to get to school early so they can have a little computer time before the school day begins.
