Fairhope teacher wins national award, meets President

Fairhope High School science teacher Megan F. O’Neill collected her national teaching award last month, along with a bonus: a handshake from the nation’s president.

“It was amazing,” O’Neill told school board members Thursday. “We stood in line in the snow to tour the White House, then went into a meeting room in the Eisenhower Building. Then the Secret Service swept the room and, right after, President Obama arrived.”
