This is the most recent drawing a student made of me.
Below is what I looked life in real life at the time:
Some might find it disconcerting to have others randomly draw you, down to the pleats on your dress and the dangling earrings in your ears, but I don't. Why would I? I'm intrigued by cartoon Rachel and her adventures. I wish I were as cute as she is, for she never seems to have a hair out of place.
I'm also pretty much in love with the bazillion buttons that I sewed onto the back of this eShakti dress a few months ago to make it more exciting. Too bad they weren't featured in the drawing. I think I'm going to have to start requesting portraits in 360 degrees if all of the details of my outfit are going to be captured.
P.S. I love my job. I love my students, even if they didn't randomly hand me pictures of myself. I love dressing up for work and being Teacher Rachel (I would never punish my ESL students asking them to call me Mrs. G-unpronounceable-Spanish-word). Language learning is such a passion of mine that I'm only rather surprised that I didn't stumble into this career any sooner.
