Blue Shirt Khaki Pants – It’s a Thing – Richard Orlopp
Mr. Orlopp and I used to be right across the hall from each other. A formidable member of the IB team, teaching senior English, and the only man I know with a drier wit than mine. We’ve become close friends in a short period of time, mainly because of our close-knit IB teacher community, and I am very thankful for his leadership and camaraderie. Sadly, we are not in the same hall anymore, but we do get to spend Tuesday and Thursday mornings tutoring in the library together, and there’s always the annual murder mystery party to look forward to. I would follow this man to the ends of the earth, even if he admitted to being even a little disoriented. He’s a loyal friend and an incredible teacher.
