The world according to Andrea


on October 27, 2008

There’s something that everyone should know about me.  I am extremely funny.  My funny-ness is exasperated by the fact that I tell people that I’m funny all the time. 

Whenever a student is absent, it gives me a bit of free time at work.  I use this extra time to play practical jokes on my co-workers.  Usually these jokes are not funny to ordinary people.  It takes people working in special education to truly appreciate my humor. 

Every faculty member is expected to get their photo taken for the year book.  For some strange reason, they (the photo people) provide each member with a full “package” of photos.  This has always seemed strange to me.  People order packages of their family portraits, or of their kids….but is it normal to have an entire “package” for an adult?  I think not.  So….what to do with all those photos?  Give them as gifts, of course.  I decided to give every staff person a small token of myself, accompanied by a funny note such as, “Just thought you might like to have a picture of the cutest teacher at Viewmont”. 

Much to my delight, my co-worker RF promptly put my picture to good use and built this “shrine” to my existence. In case you can’t quite make it out, that’s me in the middle of a cathedral-like picture with people bowing and angels praising.  It’s located in the back of his work “cubby” so that he can bow to it several times a day.  We are funny.  We are very very funny.
