I really don't care about politics but....'s not everyday you get to meet a president!

My mom and I were given the opportunity to go to a fund raising event for the Lexington Hearing and Speech center held at the RJ Corman complex in Nicholasville Friday night. The president spoke on the importance of an organization like LHSC because it is a private program serving the public.

Me and Mom

As a teacher what he said really resonanted with me. His 'line' for the night was something along the lines of--People all over the world are born with intelligence, ability and dreams but not everyone is given the empowerment and opportunities they need to fulfill all of those things. All of my students have strengths and gifts and it's up to me to help them and give them the opportuntities and empowerment to move them further in their lives. Great way to end the first week of school!!
