See what our first teacher said about Ron's visit

Ron's first virtual classroom visit was with some incredible students at Alexander II Magnet School In Macon GA.

They talked about space exploration, the importance of education, and how to get on a path to achieve your dreams.

I'm really excited to make new friends all across the country. It's going to be a lot of fun!

And to the teachers - Thank you for your hard work and sacrifices this year as we navigate through turbulent times.

I look forward to meeting you and your students.
