Sonya Romero could be your neighbor.

First of all, she's a parent.   

She's currently an educator at Albuquerque Public Schools.  Go there and you'll
find this teacher in a kindergarten
classroom at Lew Wallace Elementary.   
Sonya Romero considers herself a 
"first responder,"
by serving her pupils in all ways that
enable them to feel valuable, secure, safe.
I like her thinking!

It is essential for the youngsters
who enter into the classroom to
feel a part of something important. 
The school experience is often the
initial community each child becomes a
part of, beyond that of their family.  

  Sonya is not unlike many educators
today who value their kids as the unique human beings they are, not simply
a "number" on the class roster.  

She was recently surprised and
honored by Ellen Degeneres
(watch the segment on the link above)

for the impact Sonya Romero's made
at her workplace, on behalf of children.    

It does a heart "good" to make a difference.
Thanks to the teachers
who do that every day.

Here To Stay

Aye wintery days do fade
while snowdrifts melt away
for spring in all its loveliness,
is finally here to stay.  

Enjoy the week ahead!  
Anticipate good things await you because
sincere effort, and opportunity is not far behind.

Sunny, Saturday Pi

Today was grand!
So cue up"Uptown Funk." 

Smile, because spring's on-the-way! 
I hope you had your slice of "pi." 

To quote Bruno Mars:
"Smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy!"
