As we approach the end of the school year and the end of the presidential nominating process, I am suspending my campaign to be the next President of the United States, effective today. My students had the opportunity this year to learn about the political process, research the positions of all the major candidates, and form their own opinions on important issues that our nation faces. I am indebted to my eighth grade students for coming on this journey with me, and grateful for all the support I received from people around the world. I may not be the next President, but I did achieve my goal, which was to provide the best possible education for my students. Thank you all, so much.
