As many of you know, my husband is an educator. He’s the headmaster of a college prep school. Throughout the year he brings in many guest speakers. Yesterday Newt Gingrich came up to speak on the topic of American History. Not everyone knows he’s a scholar on the subject and spent a considerable amout of time as a professor himself. The kids were great. They asked a lot of questions and interracted very well.

What was really magical about the whole thing, though, was the way the faculty and staff put aside their personal beliefs on politics and respected the man on his knowledge of the founding of our nation. The educational world leans heavily to the left but our teachers and administrators were great. My husband is known as a man who embraces all areas of thought and brings people in from many perspectives to speak with the kids in the hope that the result will be encouraging the students to critically think.

As a thank you to Mr. Gingrich and his wife we hosted a gathering in our home last evening. Everyone had a great time. The whole thing was a wonderful experience.
