Working in a high school can be hard work. It can also be an amazing experience when you get to know the kids as individuals. Athletes, scholars, hipsters, brainiacs, gangsters, troubled kids and lovable kids. I've met them all and I can say I can appreciate each kid and they will help shape me is one way or another. Loata is a high school senior where I work. A 4.0+ student, volleyball and softball player. She's determined to make something of herself, so I thought I'd feature her in my blog. Photography is my getaway, I can only hope I brightened her day as a result.
