I have had my fix of teenagers, ahhhhhh. Being a HS Science teacher for 15 years makes you fall in love with the carefree nature of teenagers. They make me feel young again and like I actually know what is hip in the world, what is the coolest song out there, and for a few minutes I don't feel so ancient. I know some of you are saying (especially those of you who have teenagers) what....she actually "likes" their quirky ways at this awkward age? Yep, I do. Teenagers only care about having fun, laughing, and for this group, who I did some school pics for, cared about academics. I did not look at their report cards, but the way they presented themselves, talked, and behaved, I could tell they are scholars and superstar athletes. You have a month left kiddos of text messaging in the middle of the night, "no homework" passes, sleeping in late, and going to the movies at 9pm. Ahhhhh, the joys of being a teenager during summer.
