Those of you that have followed my blog for awhile know that I teach at a school that's been fairly popular among the current administration. Bill Richardson campaigned for Obama during the presidential race in 2008, Obama gave his opening day address to schools from our gym in 2009, Arne Duncan (the Sect. of Education) has visited our school at least four times, and today, Duncan, Obama, and Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard stopped in to chat with an AP US History class.
Nobody else in the building got to see him, even though we had to go through security, etc, so it was a bit anti-climatic for most, but yay for the kids in there! And Ms. Fraley (the teacher) is a good friend of mine - holla! What a fun way to celebrate your birthday :)
