    ˈkerikəCHər,ˈkerikəˌCHo͝or/
    noun

      synonyms:cartoonparodysatirelampoonburlesqueMore


    See below examples...








Directions:

1. Find a picture of a teacher from F.C.H.S.  
It would be best if you could use your phone and snap an original picture.  Expressive pictures work well-smiley, angry, grouchy, sad, etc...

2. Look for characteristics that stand out.  Later we will emphasize these features.

Now open a new document in Photohop
size 8.5 inches  x 11 inches 200 ppi

Open found teacher image in photoshop.
Select the teacher, copy, and paste into the new document
(use the magic wand, or the quick selection)

You should now have a white background, with a teacher on another layer.
