During lunch, teachers meet in offices to swarm their desks in search of much-needed papers for upcoming lessons and tests. Among them is Rondai Ravilious, who calls the history department her home away from home. She personalizes her workspace with photographs, a few wooden apples, and a ceramic pot labeled "cruise fund."

Among them is Rondai Ravilious, who calls the history department her home away from home.

CAP teacher Lansing Freeman stuffs his desk to the brim where many humorous artifacts are hidden such as a READ poster of Freeman holding a book titled "Why Do Men Have Nipples?" He also has the movie "Lawrence of Arabia" stacked on top of papers. 4Picture by Lauren PoorIn the math office, teachers keep their desks extremely neat. Peter Englemann collages his wall with newspaper clippings and pictures in ornate frames tucked away in a corner.5Picture by Lauren PoorStudent teacher Faith Kim pastes a motivational poster, much like those in math classes throughout the school, to remind herself that "Failure Is Not An Option!"6Picture by Lauren PoorDirectly behind Magnet math teacher Eric Walstein's desk, the Magnet program's mascot, the "robot vermin," scuttles around weakly after years of use. Across from this creature's home is Walstein's, complete with popcorn and a few trophies.7Picture by Lauren PoorEnglish teacher Michele Gross lines her desk with old-fashioned wallpaper and photographs of a rabbit. Many other objects bring out the personality of Gross, such as the mug from the popular television show "The Office" and the collection of photographs.8Picture by Lauren PoorAmong the sea of papers on teacher Keith Anderson’s desk is a toy penguin, a stuffed bear and a poster of a child saying, "Keith is the best!"9Picture by Lauren Poor
