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!

Ready to board the bus for the White House!
I was the second teacher to visit the Oval Office. I'm walking on Cloud 9!

I still have not received my official photograph yet, but here is the picture Jon took right before shaking President Obama's hand.
I was lucky enough to have a front row spot for the big event!

I was honored to spend time discussing education with Representative Mike Michaud.
