FABulous Presidential Visit
I was expecting the president to be more serious and the visit to be more formal. Instead he came in to the room energetic, happy, friendly, charismatic, and curious. It reminded me of the excitement when Santa Clause enters a room full of young children. Although he was only in the room for a short time. He spent time talking individually to almost everyone. He went around the entire room to see what the 10th grade Early College geometry students were working on and ask them questions. He joked, commented on their responses, and offered encouragement. He was very down-to-earth and easy to talk to. Before we knew it, the president had to leave to attend the Town Meeting in the Field house. He left behind a buzz of excitement and stories to tell.
