DENVER — It's that bittersweet time of year that is a source of both excitement and tears for parents and children — back to school. 

And it's the time of year for another tradition that goes with it: back-to-school photos.

We asked our anchors, reporters and meteorologists to share photos of themselves when they were in school, long before they dreamed of someday reporting on the news every day.

9NEWS is going "old school," and you get to try to guess who they are.
