Heidi talks to the Teacher of the Year

Talk about an inspirational guest! Heidi is interviewing someone really special this morning:

Passion, professionalism and perseverance: those are things that Tony Mullen says drive him. On Tuesday, President Barack Obama named Mullen the 2009 National Teacher of the Year, at a White House ceremony. Today - Heidi is talking with him!
Mullen is a ninth through twelfth grade special education teacher at The ARCH School, an alternative education branch of Greenwich High School in Greenwich, Connecticut. And he's someone who is changing lives - by reaching out to students with unique needs. He says: "teachers are entrusted with the task of creating intelligent, ethical, and productive young adults–a job achieved by understanding the many shades and hues of children and how they learn."

Join Heidi in the Newsroom this morning from 9a-11a - as she talks to the Teacher of the Year, Tony Mullen.

    Why don't you post the interview on the blog?

    Two words. Noblesse Oblige. You've been pedalling it for a while. It helps here and there. But there are lots and lots of good even great teachers doing what's talked about here as part of their everyday life.

    Wow breaking news about the Chrysler deal falling apart. Why does that even have to happen, just because it can?

    On Chrysler, who do we have to propitiate to keep the auto industry viable and aren't they propitiated yet? There are some pretty steep consequences out here. We lavish all kinds of attention on the media, these autoworkers are just looking to keep their jobs.
