So, if President Barack Obama didn't call an Idaho Falls teacher this month, who did call? Or was the call fabricated?
When Skyline High School teacher Julie Narwrocki returns to her classroom this coming week following the holiday break, she'll face a lot of questions in the wake of an Associated Press report that disputes her claim that Obama called her personally on Dec. 19.
Nawrocki told the Idaho Falls Post Register that the president asked her to participate in a strategy-building session for new math testing standards.
But the AP reports that the U.S. Department of Education spokesman Daren Briscoe says the White House "confirmed the president did not call Nawrocki."
The AP says that the Idaho Falls School District, which widely publicized the alleged incident, is investigating the matter.
In a text message to Idaho Falls KIFI-TV, Nawrocki said she was the victim:
"Unfortunately, I was the victim of a scam concerning my ... nomination. I am sorry that someone used what is a great opportunity and honor to hurt and embarrass not only me, but my school and district."
