Greenwich resident Kaitlin Roig, who's a first-grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, will attend Tuesday night's State of the Union address, sitting with First Lady Michelle Obama.
According to a White House announcement released by US Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.):
"Kaitlin Roig has taught first grade for six years at Sandy Hook Elementary, and has always had a passion for education and working with children. She attended and received her Master’s degree from the NEAG School of Education at the University of Connecticut, where she was a member of the Order of Omega Honor Society, The Historical Honor Society, and the NEAG honor society. In addition to her teaching, Kaitlin also started a running club called Marathon Mondays for third and fourth grade students at Sandy Hook Elementary. She will be running the New York City Marathon this year."
