Davis Reads & Lady Macbeth


At Davis High School where I teach we are implementing a new reading initiative. To catapult this into place, each teacher was encouraged to bring their favorite book (s) and head to the photography studio to have their picture taken. These picture are placed in said teachers classrooms in 20x24 size frames (I think) for all to see. I thought it would be way too much fun to dress up as my favorite Shakespearean character and get my picture taken. My bestest friend Syd came and did my hair and make up. I barely fit into that dress (my ribcage is not the size it use to be) and I think I made my friend Kelly Oram who took my picture an eensy-weensy bit uncomforable because of how much skin I was showing. And plus, I just look damn hot! This is the closest I will ever be to actually being Lady Macbeth. And I'm okay with that. My favorite part of the picture is the blood dripping off the knife. Also a Syd feature. My other favorite part is having this in my classroom when my new little sophomores come in next year. I think I may carry around my blood soaked knife on the first day. Just for fun.

Way cool! I loved all your entries, especially your Macbeth pic and Duncan funnies. It's so fun to read your blog because I laugh out loud everytime. Remind me not to read it after everyone's asleep next time. :o) Love ya!

THIS FREAKIN' ROCKS!!! I think the blood soaked knife would be a much needed prop on the first day... or the first week. Also, you would make a rockin' Lady M. Are you kidding me? You just look at students and they cower and are ready to do whatever you say!!!!
YOU LOOK STUNNING.

I'm happy to see the Bard is alive and well in the Thorne household. You'd be proud of me, I just finished Othello for the first time. Don't know how I feel about it yet. Also, you'd be proud of a shirt Kim made for me. It has a really unattractive picture of Shakespeare himself surrounded by the words "Write poetry... it's hot." Pretty sweet.

This is Dave not Kim. Obviously.

Your poor sophomores. I remember you scared the crap out of me on my first day, and you didn't even have a knife!
