Joe brought President Theodore Roosevelt to our school for a day of in-class visits with our 11th grade American History students. He captivated the students at all levels - from general level classes to AP students – and even though he provided each class with information they’d need to know in their studies, he had such a wealth of anecdotes about TR that his presentation stayed fresh, even during the final class! The American History teachers were delighted, and I saw other teachers and school staff come in during the day, just to watch for a few minutes. Perhaps the best review of all came from another parent, who wrote me that her daughter came home full of “TR stories” after Joe’s visit with her class. I should also mention the depth and breadth of Joe’s Roosevelt scholarship. At the end of each class he asked the students whether they had any questions. No matter what the topic – from National Parks to Hawaiian annexation – Joe was able to answer as TR, giving details and quotes in his answers. It was very impressive.
