Obama's sister speaks to teachers

While Obama continues his oversees visit, his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, was in Florida talking to teachers on his behalf.

Soetoro-Ng said she remembers her first year teaching when she ended up crying every week.

"There were so many problems, I was teaching in a title one district and over 80 percent of the community lived below the poverty line. And poverty does impact education," she said.
