A Unique Family Photo

This photo includes (I think!) all current members of the Harvard faculty whom I have taught. Thanks to everyone for making the effort to show up, and thanks to Eliza Grinnell for her typically masterful staging and camerawork!
Two questions. Am I missing anyone? And can anyone think of another Harvard professor who has had eleven of his or her students on the faculty simultaneously?

Left to right:
Peter Manuelian, Philip J. King Professor of Egyptology
Michael Mitzenmacher, Thomas J. Watson, Sr., Professor of Computer Science
Scott Kominers, Associate Professor of Business Administration
Salil Vadhan, Vicky Joseph Professor of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics
Harry Lewis, Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science
Stuart Shieber, James O. Welch, Jr. and Virginia B. Welch Professor of Computer Science
Margo Seltzer, Herschel Smith Professor of Computer Science
David Malan, Gordon McKay Professor of the Practice of Computer Science
Rebecca Nesson, Lecturer on Computer Science
Jenny Hoffman, Professor of Physics and Applied Physics
Alexander Sasha Rush, Assistant Professor of Computer Science
Henry Leitner, Senior Lecturer on Computer Science

Everyone in the photo has a faculty appointment and took a course from me. Mitzenmacher, Vadhan, Malan, Seltzer, Nesson, Rush, and Leitner were also my TFs.
