Throwback Thursday (#TBT): My First Job

001 (22)
Throwback Thursday is a Facebook tradition in which people share pictures of themselves from the past -- usually as kids, teens, or young adults.  But nobody really wants to see that stuff from colleagues and counterparts, so I've come up with an adapted version that's a little bit more suitable for a work setting:  Throwback Thursday: First Job.

In Throwback Thursday: My First Job, people share images of themselves at their first job -- teacher, counselor, whatever.  In my case, my first two important jobs were (a) 7th and 10th grade English teacher at what is now Harvard-Westlake School in LA and (b) legislative aide (education, labor, immigration, health, women's issues) for newly-elected US Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

A school yearbook picture of me doing the first job (circa 1989) is above.  An equally hard-to-believe-I-ever-looked-that-young picture of me working for Feinstein (circa 1995) is below the fold.  Take a look, enjoy them both, and then it's your turn. I don't want to find them on my own, but if I have to I will.
