How Can You Not Smile At This!


I had a wonderful day today at school My middle school hosted a Political Convention We encouraged all students to wear red, white and blue, make signs and participate in our festivities. These students definitely participated! These fifth graders, whom I don't know personally, came to show me their fantastic masks! Of course, I gave my sympathy to Hillary for not making it through the primaries and shook all of their hands. I have to admit that I later hit Obama with a cart (by accident) as I rounded a corner in the hallway. I must say, considering my political leanings, I rather enjoyed the incident!

Congratulations on the event! You should be very proud of your work. My daughter loved it, she even said she cried a bit when Ms. Velez was talking about Africa! Having middle school kids think politically is so important for the future of our country. Good for you....I knew it was going to be great.

Nice going again, Steve. You do such a great job, no wonder the kids love you and your classes so much.

Yes, I did smile...what a fun photo! :-) I think it's really great that your students are enthusiastically embracing this historic event. I was so apathetic at their age! (BTW...just got a call from Dave. At this very moment, he's at an Obama Rally in Richmond - standing about 25 feet from the NEXT President of the United States! Sorry...I couldn't resist! Ha!).
