I am a teacher at heart.
In the seven years I was in the classroom I saw it all.
I can peg an only child in the grocery store.
I can tell you who is going to be arrested by the age of 15.
I can tell you who the next Steve Jobs will be.
I can tell you who will grow up to do great things.
I can also tell you who doesn’t have a chance without a little intervention.
What’s this got to do with JJ?
In all my years working with kids,
I NEVER met a more polite, gracious, and respectful
young man until I met JJ!!
We hadn’t met until the day of his shoot.
He shook my hand.
He listened to everything I said.
He thanked me! MORE THAN ONCE!
He was so appreciative of our time together.
He shook my hand!!
He thanked me!!
THANK YOU, JJ!
You are a treasure!
You WILL go places!
You WILL do GREAT things!
It was an honor to capture your senior PIXELS!!
God Bless my friend!!
