...because I KNEW where you were going. I KNEW you'd get to "she'd taken the time to learn about my students."

I KNEW she read the coverage about your classroom and how you became your state's TotY. And probably refreshed what she already knew about special education issues, funding, policy, etc... and maybe mugged up a couple of quality recent analyses on the topic.

Because that's how our next President rolls.

She may not do "charisma," but she's ALL OVER "competence."

I will miss the combination of warm charisma, integrity, and thoughtful leadership that is Barack Obama. But I'm also looking forward to the combination of competence, caring, and commitment that is Hillary Rodham Clinton, 45th President of the United States of America.
