Such an emotional news. Go to hell. Of corse that’s the base of the change for years and years teaching a communist doctrine little by little . Wake up America !!! ABC covering lying joe...😂 This one’s really gonna piss off the tRUMP boot-deepthroaters Kindergartners have no need to even talk about this, she is a ridiculous person and terrible teacher
👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Should have been fired just like when a teacher congratulation To President trump How long before the school board calls for her removal? Hopefully clueless ignorant people get what REAL PRESIDENTS DO and not a FAKE FOO want a be President who orchestrates an attack on American soil. We are the United States of America not Trump America. 80 Million Americans took Trump to the Dump.. now leave him there.
Some of the hatful responses to this post is making my butt itch. Whether or not it was actually president Biden or, vice president Harris shouldn't matter. What should always matter first, was how those children felt about the gesture. Us grown-ups can really suck sometimes. 😡 :) Brain washing your kids at 5 years old!
BFD Of course they would! This new administration has class, no pundit intended. So is how to cheat an election and win now a curriculum in kindergarten now? Smart people are back. Brainwashing her children students with her political views? That can’t be okay! 🤣 Everyone gets a generic reply. ABC you know this. Why make this news to be mocked!
What suck up Thanks comrades we soon will cripple this country. Keep up the great work Did it have text and was it actually signed UNLIKE HIS EA’s on the 20th? Good for you guys! It’s truly sad that others look to steal someone’s else’s happiness. If you don’t like or agree with it...keep it moving! Smh!
Ahe should be fired God bless your blessings. Uh huh. We will see how special she feels when teenagers working at McDonald’s are making more than her. Our country is slowly returning to normalcy. 👍🏻👍🏻 Keep your politics out of the classroom and just teach. Your opinions are irrelevant. That's awesome! They get extra cool points from me for things like this!🤩
That’s amazing. ... considering I just got a Christmas card that was mailed in November. Do you mean, cut and paste Microsoft Word Template and insert a pdf of their signatures? 🙏 It just shows the importance that this administration is going to pay to both our kids & our adults Standard government response letter 😆
Awesome That’s so awesome!!!!! Thanks for sharing this!! It really helps to emphasize how we’ve entered a wonderful era of positivity and hope with this new administration! Love you, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris!! Bless her heart for being naive. He doesn’t need a thank you, he needs to be arrested for cheating the election. We don’t need our rights taken away
My students (2nd grade and then Kdg) and I used to write to the new President. We loved getting responses and the fun things they would send! Big deal 🤣🤣 Proof that your new President and his Vice care for all American Must be an executive order. Nice Trump would have done the same thing....NOT!!! But if a teacher sent a letter to Trump all the media outlets minds would melt from seething anger & call for them to be fired! All bc orange man bad, old perv Joe, Nancy, Mitch the bitch gonna save America from the bs they’ve spent 50 years or so creating!
Good PR. So we teach politics and hold mock Presidential elections in kindergarten classes now? Whooped Oh my word! An intern sent you a reply! What a beautiful man! Oh praise his name!!
