After a "technical problem" interrupted a Skype session at Brewer Community School, the screen lifted and Bush and LePage appeared in person Monday for third- and fourth-graders.
No one was more surprised than teacher Cherrie MacInnes, who organized the Web-based visit. The Bangor Daily News said she was so thrilled that she did a little dance.
She told the newspaper, "I don't think I've even been surprised like this."
Bush and LePage answered some questions from students after a presentation on Brewer. Then Bush walked through with her dog, allowing all to pet the animal.
