Obama Didn’t Call Skyline Teacher


(IDAHO FALLS) – A highly publicized phone call between President Barack Obama and a Skyline High School math teacher didn’t actually happen.

Julie Nawrocki told the Post Register she got a phone call Dec. 19 from someone she thought was the president but the White House confirmed last week that Obama never placed the call.

District 91 administrators are investigating exactly what happened, but Nawrocki says she was probably the victim of a cruel joke.

Idaho education officials say Nawrocki was nominated for a testing standards group, but not by the president.

Another Idaho teacher was also nominated, but never received a call.
