Miracle on 135th Avenue

I come from a family of educators and so I know, yeah, those summers off look like a pretty sweet deal, but teaching is hard.  So it was a real treat to photograph a positive story about education for Willamette Week.  Visit the cafeteria of David Douglas High School and you feel like you are at the United Nations, 55 plus languages bounce around amidst chocolate milk and tater tots.  But it seems like they make it work.WW-SCHOOL79 WW-SCHOOL80 WW-SCHOOL81 WW-SCHOOL82 WW-SCHOOL83 WW-SCHOOL84 WW-SCHOOL85 WW-SCHOOL86 WW-SCHOOL87
