May 3, 2011 Visit to the White House

Today was the most amazing day! Each Teacher of the Year spent a few minutes in the Oval Office speaking to President Obama and having a photo taken. It was a moment to rememeber. I wish life had a pause button because it was over so quickly! In the afternoon, Jon and I went to meet with Senator Susan Collins and Representative Mike Michaud to discuss education legislation. It was an incredible opportunity to share my thoughts with the delegates from Maine!

I was lucky enough to have a front row spot for the big event!
