High School Teacher
Well, let's see. He's a poet and a fighter and a man who deeply loves. He's also a bully when he thinks he's right.
1. A bulldozer. He is this when he literally forces Montfleury off the stage and single-handedly closes "La Clorisse."
2. A moon. The moon is changeable yet constant, shining its light brightly at times and taking on the cover of darkness at others.
3. A white plume. A plume, of course, is a feather. In a way it is fragile (they do break) and useful (as a writing utensil) and strong (for it is the fowl's best protection) and resilient (as it repels water)--and it is beautiful and it can soar.
