 County Executive Ike Leggett - Teacher for A Day

Teacher for A Day. County Executive Ike Leggett is no stranger to the classroom, having been a law professor at Howard University. But, he used his skills with a completely new group of students on May 10 when he taught Amy Soldavini’s grade level/advanced English classes at A. Mario Loiederman Middle School in Silver Spring. He had full responsibility for all aspects of classroom operations and activities, including discipline, lesson presentation – and collecting papers at the end of class. This first “Teacher for a Day” program ever presented by the Montgomery County Education Association was part of the National Education Association’s National Teacher Day. It was designed to honor local teachers and acknowledge the crucial role teachers play in making sure every student receives a quality education.
