Today’s Anniversary: Teddy Roosevelt’s Foreign Trip

It's November 9, and on this date in 1906, President Teddy Roosevelt became the first sitting president to take a foreign trip when he traveled south to check out the construction of the Panama Canal.  These days, presidential trips to foreign countries are commonplace and even a necessity in many instances, but back then the idea of a president visiting a foreign country while in office was something entirely new.  All of us at the American School know that people today don't stay in one place for too long.  You may take a vacation for a few days, or you may have to go out of town or even go overseas for an extended period of time.  That's why our curriculum is perfect for every need.  You can take our course materials with you wherever you go, and if you're going to be overseas for an extended period of time, we can make arrangements for you to receive several courses at once, provided your account is in good financial standing.  Beginning next week, we'll have a new way for you to get your exams to us quicker whether you're right near our office near Chicago or halfway around the world.  Check out this blog on Monday for more details.
