Where I work

Where I work
I took my camera to work today and used the wonky lens that doesn't autofocus anymore. It worked inside! But once I took it outside into the wintry icy air, no worky. But I managed to get a few shots, regardless. I was working on them tonight, trying to decide which was best. It's going to end up in a framed print that we're giving to someone who is retiring. So no pressure here (not) to get it right.
This is a K-12 college preparatory school in Maryland. I've been here for 11 years and both of my sons graduated from here, in 2003 and 2005. It's a great place to work.

It is a beautiful building. I LOVE school buildings. I love the way they smell. Can you tell I am a teacher at heart?

In the 1950s England had a habit of building a large number of schools in one style - deadly dull and boring. Seeing your school makes me wonder if the appearance of the school actually has an impact on attendance, student enthusiasm, etc. Worth a study I should think.
