As a former martial arts instructor, Chris Manning believes in control. The Ensign Intermediate School history teacher describes himself as a free spirit much of the time, but in the early weeks of a new school year, he'll keep smiling and joking to a minimum. "When kids come in, if you present an attitude that's calm and businesslike, they'll learn to respect you," Manning told a classroom full of new secondary school teachers during the Newport-Mesa Unified School District's orientation week.

Computer teacher Anna Martirosyan doesn’t normally work with French fries, but she got behind the counter of a wildly busy McDonald’s on Thursday night to raise money for John Muir Elementary School. As ecstatic children ran back and forth past a line that seemed to continuously stretch out the door, Martirosyan said she loved taking part in Muir’s annual McTeacher’s night fundraiser, in which teachers help to prepare and serve the gamut of McDonald’s favorites, although she joked that it wasn’t always easy.

Instrumental music director Amy Rangel taught Glendale High School students who had never picked up an instrument how to play and fall in love with it. Many educators say starting to learn an instrument as a teenager is just too late, Rangel said. But she has devoted her summers to teaching music to beginners. She also teaches students with advanced music skills how to become the best they can be, she said. “Our main focus is developing student musicianship and leadership skills,” said Rangel, who has taught at Glendale High for eight years.

About 20 Glendale Unified School District teachers watched on Wednesday as a miniature fan was turned on and powered by a hand-crank generator. Then they tried an alternative. The same tiny fan was connected to a collection of solar cells. It started whirring almost immediately, powered without any motion, using just the energy contained in the solar cells. The crowd released a few intrigued “oohs” as the teachers started to absorb the day’s lesson on solar electricity.
