Today Emily posted about how she and I worked together when she was a sign language interpreter. It was my first teaching job and I was really excited. Emily and I were both the same age and we were starting there together. I really liked teaching high school. I had fun when I was attending high school, and this was fun for me. I got involved in all sorts of things...I coached the flag group, helped plan proms and took kids abroad. It was a great couple of years.
Anyway, I thought I would posts some pics from that time in my life. Now, these are pictures of pictures and area little fuzzy. And I really had loooooooonnnng hair back then.
And ugly glasses. They were so big and pale. They really didn't compliment my skin at all. I kind of miss having all that hair sometimes, but I think I went through several mousse bottles a month.
Here is our friend Amanda from England. She is with me at one of the Proms I planned. She was so excited to go because they don't have Proms in England and she had seen them in all sorts of movies. I have no idea why she is holding a balloon to her head. This is also when I learned that I don't look good in strapless dresses.
Another year, another Prom. I actually really liked this dress and it was dirt cheap. I got it after christmas in a holiday clearance. It was really comfortable. All these girls with me are some of my favorite students. Notice how they are showing waaaay more chest than me?
This dress didn't photograph so well, but I loved it and still have it. I might wear it again someday, and who knows where. My hair was funky at this one...
Here is the pic you have been waiting for...Emily and I. We thought we were being so cute. I'm not sure where she found the dress...I think in the back of her closet. From high school. And it still fit. I loved that silver skirt. We had so much fun that night! The teachers were actually a fun group and we all got on the dance floor with the kids.
I have lots of pics of Emily and me from those two years we worked together, and I was sad when she left. Luckily, I only posted the ones where she and I looked cute! There are a couple I'm sure she rather I burn. And others I need to burn for myself.
High school was much more fun the second time around!
