An older, well-dressed gentleman stood on the stage of the auditorium, addressing the crowd of new students before him. While he had many years under his belt, he still seemed spry and knowledgeable of today's youth.
"Welcome, students, to your freshman year at Chambers High School. My name is Dr. Jenkin Stein. I am the Principal of Chambers High, and your last line of authority."
He placed his hand in his pocket. It seemed as if he had done the same speech for many years. This was all old hat to him... the same thing every year. Another flock leaves the nest while a new batch of hatchlings enters.
"Many of you are away from home for the first time. This can be very trying, but remember that the staff is here to help you."
He leaned against the podium, and lowered his tone, as if he were to revealing new and exciting information. However, the students had all heard the same story.
"You are all here because you are all special. Each of you has powers and abilities that ordinary humans do not. Some of you have super abilities. Our superhero and supervillain courses will teach you all you need to know. Others are 'creatures of the night' or are one with the supernatural. We have many courses for you as well. And even those of you whose abilities have yet to manifest, or are, well, undefined, we will help you find your place as well. When you leave this school, you will have the skills to make it in this world! You will make a difference!"
He paused, waiting for applause, but only received a few claps from somewhere in the audience. Unaffected, he continued.
"Thank you. If you have any problems, or just want to talk, do not be afraid to approach me. I am there for you. Meanwhile, room assignments can be found on the bulletin board in the hall way. Classes begin tomorrow at 8 AM. Dismissed."

Mr. Scott stood against the back of the auditorium. This would be his sixth year at Chambers, and while it was far from what anybody would call a 'normal' teaching job, he wouldn't trade it for the world.
