new American hero

I've been volunteering in Makili's class.  This week, the teacher was having them use coins to add up to various numbers.  She pointed out that the quarter and the nickel look alike and some students have trouble with that.  Makili raises his hand and points out, well, the quarter had George Washington.  The teacher asked if he knew was on the nickel - he didn't: Thomas Jefferson.  Then she started talking about the penny.  Makili raised his hand and said he knew who was on the penny: "Michaelham Lincoln."  Awesome.
