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.
