Inspired by last week's vivid reader comment, A Day At Crane High School, we're having a contest of sorts for the next few days in which readers describe the school (or administrative office) where they work, or where their children attend, or where they pass by every day.
So brush off your writing skills and tell us what it's like where you are -- what it looks like, what it sounds like, what things you notice from being there all the time, or how it's changed lately. Describe a typical day, or the best or worst one you can remember. Be truthful, honest, vivid.
Write anonymously if you want to -- I don't want anyone to get in trouble -- but be as specific as you can about naming the school, area, or neighborhood. No one will know who you are -- there are 25,000 CPS teachers out there, and hundreds of thousands of parents.
