It’s one coronavirus lockdown video call they won’ t soon forget.
Chicago Public Schools teachers stated they were “overwhelmed,” honored,” “beyond excited” and even shivering when former President Barack Obama called them to mark National Teachers Gratitude Week.
Obama, a longtime Chicago citizen, thanked 3 teachers for their commitment, inquired to discuss how they entered into mentor and heard them talk of the obstacles they have actually dealt with throughout the coronavirus pandemic in a video that he tweeted Wednesday.
There was even a sweet exchange at the end including the Michael Jordan-Chicago Bulls documentary “The Last Dance,” that includes a saucy recommendation to the former president.
There’s no limitation to the dedication I have actually seen in teachers like these @ChiPubSchools teachers. Their commitment forms the very best parts of who we end up being. I could not be more glad for their work, particularly as they move lessons online to keep trainees on track throughout this crisis. pic.twitter.com/xYECcrAxdE
