Much better day today. Mr Photo updated the fancy computers so I could actually let students use them. (Gasp! What heresy!) His student teacher seemed a bit frazzled at being thrown to the wolves, but I assured her that I probably knew less about photography than she did, and was pretty sure I could muddle through just fine. Told her I'd pass along any treasures I found to her.
Most kids had cameras and pictures, so we spent a lot of time setting up folders and passing around the two cheap-o card readers I picked up at Walmart. Then I showed them a couple little tips to get them started in Photoshop and let them go. Let a few go out to take pictures, and they came back right when they were supposed to. Everyone was on task, working, playing with photoshop. Seems like a successful day to me.
Except the one poor girl who got really frustrated and went and sat in a comfy chair halfway through class. Asked her about it at the end of class and she blamed it on her period coming. Lol. Don't know if I ever would have admitted such a thing to my high school teachers. I'll have to remember to sit down with her tomorrow and see if we can't figure some stuff out together.
