It's not everyday you get to meet the governor.
Two lucky teachers from the Missouri School for the Deaf traveled to the Governor's Mansion on Tuesday for an event honoring special educators from around the state. Meghan Duggins, who teaches preschool at MSD, and Bethany Peterson, MSD's high school history teacher, made their way to Jefferson City as honorees.
"The governor wanted to honor teachers in the field of special education," Peterson said. "There were 10-12 teachers there from around the state."
Gov. Eric Greitens played the role of host well, Peterson said. "He was very personable," she said. "He went around and met everyone with his wife. He was very kind."
Duggins said the governor also took the time to say thank you to each of them individually.
"I think the governor is a humanitarian," Peterson said. "I think he gives second chances and has a big heart."
