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.
