Happy birthday to my favorite person. @melindafrenchgates, you’ve had an amazing year. I can’t wait to see how you top it.
In just six years of teaching, Robert Hand has had such a tremendous impact on his school that he was named the 2019 Teacher of the Year for my home state of Washington. He was nice enough to visit my office earlier this year and show me how to make one of his students’ favorite dishes: barbecue chicken.
