Go Texan Day Pictures: The Educators

Don't forget to send your Go Texan Day pictures to the Houston Press Flickr page, where glory awaits.

Meanwhile, we have two entries from the Educators category. Above, Drew Houlihan -- the principal at Parker Elementary, HISD's music magnet and piece of Beyoncé history -- sets the bar very high for his competitors. A hat, sure. A cowboy wave, yeah. A horse?

Ball's in your court, other principals, teachers and educators.

Next is a more well-known member of this category....

UH President Renu Khator rides a desk instead of a horse, but she also misses a key opportunity.

"Showing my Texan pride," she wrote on her Twitter page. "I must say boots are lot more comfortable than high heels!"

Dude: The only proper photo in that case is you leaning back, your boot-clad feet crossed casually on the desk. Work it!!
