Garrett Richter aced his student teaching test on Friday. The Florida state senator spoke to Jennifer Sickels’ second grade class at Tommie Barfield Elementary on Friday, and his enthusiastic delivery and willingness to engage the kids on their own level trumped the material he had to cover, and even the fact that immediately after his talk, the children were free for a week of spring break.
