The Teacher

Just as I was about to leave my favorite spot for finding good subjects, this woman came out of the supermarket carrying two bags of groceries. When I asked to take her photo, she readily agreed but my interview was cut short. She told me she had been an elementary school teacher, and then excused herself, telling me that she was illegally parked and had to hurry off.

When I looked at the one picture I had of the teacher, I couldn't help but imagine that her pupils must have loved her.
