Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Teachers work hard. My husband teaches high school Ecomomics and Government and usually teaches from 7:45-4:00pm, everyday. Well this week was a little bit different he got to meet Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

She created the icivics program that teaches students 4th -12th grade about civics issues via video games. Sandra Day O'Connor worked with Ken Starr, Baylor president to pilot test the program. Baylor Law and Education Departments worked with WacoISD to introduce it to the students. It seems to work seamlessly with the curriculum and testing and they kids liked it. Look out for it to go nation wide in a few years :)

I am so glad he not only gets to participate in icivics (which seems really cool) but also to meet the wonderfully successful, civics minded creator.
