My photo archive for 2013 has just over 1,000 pictures in it. That’s just the selects, the best few from every shoot. Unedited, there are thousands more from schools all across the state. I often say I have the best job at the Kentucky Department of Education and reviewing my work from the past year reaffirms it. It is a privilege to witness all of the hard work being done by teachers and students on a daily basis and to share it with the rest of you.
So here are my favorite education pictures from 2013. Some of them I just love the picture, others I loved the content. All of them I loved the experience. Have a great 2014!
