Professor Joe Blatt has spent much of his career at Harvard working with the Sesame Workshop, a "Sesame Street"-based nonprofit dedicated to helping children learn and grow. As a thank-you for his inspiring work, his students at the Harvard Graduate School of Education reached out to Sesame Workshop CEO Jeffrey Dunn and commissioned the creation of a Muppet in Blatt's likeness. Perhaps you'll agree the resemblance is striking.

His students presented Blatt with the replica in a ceremony at the end of June, and as you can see, he was delighted. "I'll try to find some powerful and motivating way to use it in classes," he said. "I'm also thinking seriously about never going to another faculty meeting and just propping this up in a chair so they think I'm there."
