Yeah, we can't either. But that's exactly what the former president did at McKinley Tech in Washington, D.C. this week. The look on these students' faces is priceless. They're just sitting in a circle, doing typical back-to-school activities, when none other than former president Barack Obama casually strolls into the classroom. "You guys don't mind me crashing, right?" Obama asked the students. Obviously they said no! The 56-year-old leader proceeded to give the students at McKinley Tech a pep talk they're sure to remember.

"Just to kind of hear from them, find out what they're interested in, because I do believe that most of the problems we have are going to be solved by you."
