We look at newspaper pictures from around the country each week as we edit for the Week in Pictures. It is always one of our favorite duties because the photographs are often some of the best. I really like what Jim Rider captured in this picture. I'd bet he had to convince someone to let him know that this teacher was going to be named. The connection and trust that a photographer builds with a community is vital.
