Orange County Breeze editor Shelley Henderson gesturing while talking with the students in Room 29 during King Elementary School’s Career Day. I’m wearing my Winter work clothes — jeans, a polo shirt, a dark sweatshirt, and billed baseball cap. The kids wanted to know if I ever wear a dress. I told them sometimes, but not usually because I never know what sort of situation I’ll find myself in. I would rather feel underdressed at a business meeting than have to hike around a muddy field in high heels, nylons and a flippy skirt! Photo by the nice substitute teacher in charge that day.
