Barack Obama Surprises Teachers With A Message Of Thanks

Former President Barack Obama joined several surprise teachers in a video chat to thank them during Teacher Appreciation Week as educators across the country adjust to teaching their students with remote learning due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a video posted to Twitter from the former president’s official account, Obama praised three teachers and listened to their stories and the unusual challenges they’re facing now.


There’s no limit to the devotion I’ve seen in teachers like these @ChiPubSchools educators. Their dedication shapes the best parts of who we become. I couldn’t be more thankful for their work, especially as they shift lessons online to keep students on track during this crisis.

This was really nice of President Obama 🙏🏾📚🇺🇸
