Today was a proud day for me as an educator. The guest speaker for our 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony was Bertram “BJ” Watson, Jr – a football player for Harvard and one of my first Media Arts students. (This was long enough ago that we didn’t even call it Media Arts back then, but we still made movies.)
He was an incredible speaker, and what he had to say mirrored a lot of what I try to teach in my classroom.
So naturally, the best photo I have of him is a blurry mess.
