As someone who has taught and directed these students, I think it's safe to say that the pleasure was all mine! Their photos turned out BEAUTIFULLY and I am keeping my fingers crossed that they book plenty of auditions with these bad boys. BREAK A LEG YOU GUYS!!
Up first was Darren, who was in my 4th period class my first year of teaching. Now, he's a sophomore at Columbia College in Chicago and making us all very proud! Darren claims to be not to be photogenic (which isn't true!) and we got the winning shot immediately. Once he saw it, he called the photo session a wrap because it was way too hot outside!
Jessica was also in my 4th period class my first year of teaching and is now a junior in college. This year, she is transferring Texas Christian University. GO FROGS! Jessica was very different than Darren. She is an avid fan of America's Next Top Model and has been practicing her "smize" for years now. I think her hard work has paid off!
Eduardo is a person who I never actually had in class (there's more than one theatre teacher) but he and I bonded my first year teaching (and his freshman year) while trying to assemble some set pieces that the school had ordered for us that DIDN'T come with instructions, making it a memorable experience. I'm looking forward to seeing what he does at SHSU!
