Thursday was an amazing day.

Our class had the privilege of meeting Martha Washington during a video conference session with Mount Vernon. We have been looking forward to the session for quite some time and spent part of several days brainstorming and preparing questions to ask America’s original First Lady.

Mary Wiseman, who portrays Mrs. Washington, was amazing in the way she engaged the students and delivered such interesting knowledge about Martha’s life and relationship to the president. It was, truly, one of the best video conferencing sessions we’ve been part of this year.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Crystal McCliggott from Mount Vernon for making the meeting with Martha Washington possible.
