Albany-- Middle school students in Albany had a surprise visitor in their history class. Julianne Chambliss taught an eighth grade Georgia history class a little bit about the nation's capital. She spends time there with her husband, Congressman Saxby Chambliss. Julianne Chambliss says, "Education is my thing. I can go into schools and talk to educators to see if they are having problems and take them back to Saxby. That's what I like to do in the school's but my favorite thing is teaching."

Mrs. Chambliss taught in Moultrie for 25 years, and just retired from teaching after a 30 year career.
