My School Neighbor Gave Me These- Said They Look Like Me

A couple of weeks ago, my next door neighbor at school put out a call for a poster about reading.

There was to be a state inspection and a visual aid encouraging reading was on the checklist. When I saw her in the hall, I offered a collage of photographs of students reading their favorite books.  She was thrilled and one of her students created a large poster with the photos and added some text about the benefits of reading.

It looked good and she told me it was well received by the inspection team.  My colleague was pleased.  And grateful.  I wish I had a photo of the finished poster to include in this post but it is at school.

As a thank you, she brought me this unexpected gift.

She said when she saw them at the store, they reminded her of me.  I looked in the mirror and I see the resemblance!

When I saw the smiling face socks,  I thought of fellow blogger Stef and her Smile, Kiddo blog. Always on the lookout for smiles.

Here’s a link to a cool post titled What I Like About Me.

 Right now the high school students are working on creating images for a positive image campaign so it’s a great post for that theme.

p.s. You can see Twilight, Gregory Crewdson’s book of photographs.  If you haven’t seen his movie Brief Encounters about how he makes his photographs, check out the trailer and the film.
