Award-winning playwright Margaret Edson
...you MUST watch this video of Mararet Edson's commencement speech at Smith College. Margaret Edson, an award-winning playwright and a Smith College alumna who teaches kindergarten in the Atlanta public school system, was the speaker at the college’s 130th commencement ceremony Sunday, May 18.
Edson's speech is funny, inspiring, and brilliant! (Thanks to A Year of Reading and The Miss Rumphius Effect for the link).
P.S. I can name all of my teachers through sixth grade, too, can you?
