"Johnny" is a didactic poem that I wrote to explain the mission and focus of KnowledgeBase. I wrote it to resolve frustration I was experiencing with resistance from all the schools and organizations with whom I was trying to partner. This film captures my first live performance of "Johnny" (or any of my other writing). It is a metaphor of me conquering my fears of not being taken seriously as an engineer-turned-educator - with my snickering KnowledgeBase Summer Academy students representing the world at large.
