I must have driven past Eagle Point Elementary hundreds of times in my life, and I don’t think I’ve ever noticed it was there. Too bad, because it’s quite a school. Check out this Backbeard-inspired artwork:
It’s an old building, but a few years ago they renovated it and turned the old gym into a library. It’s a really beautiful space, tall and full of light. It was a pleasure presenting there.
One of my favorite parts of the visit was when one class presented me with a set of drawings they had done, trying to guess what I was going to look like. Here’s me with my alter ego, Backbeard:

It was one of those days that just flew by, and the evening talk with the parents was the icing on the cake. Thanks to everyone at Eagle Point – Mrs. Fusco, Mrs. Wiley, Mrs. Cronin, and Ms. Salvaggio – and all the kids and parents for making it such a special day.
