Rodney Robinson, a social studies teacher at the Virgie Binford Educational Center, was honored with the 2019 National Teacher of the Year by President Donal Trump at the White House on Monday.  

The President was absent from the ceremony, but met Robinson in a surprise visit to the oval office in which he complimented him and thanked him for his hard work. Media was not allowed at the event, but the White House Twitter account tweeted a photo of Robinson and the President during his oval office visit.

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos also tweeted a photo of her, President Trump and Robinson with his award.
