I love my one 11th grade Pre AP Biology class. I had these twenty incredible people two years ago as Freshmen, my first year in Colombia. It was a wonderful feeling to be able to start school this year and not have to go through the usual familiarization process; they knew me and I knew them. This period is often my saving grace from the occasional inanity of 14 and 15 year olds as well as an intellectual challenge for me and them. It is a largely a project based course and, for the most part, being over-stressed Juniors, they handle work time pretty well. And even when they're not, I can't deny their creativity and love of life.
These pictures are not mine; I jacked them from a blooming photographer in my class. This is my life.
