The Ellen Show
Local teacher reminds us how kind our city can be
By Amelia Olson [ Mon Mar 23 2015 2:32 PM ]

Local schoolteacher Sonya Romero is just one example of the kindness Burque folks possess, and thanks to her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, a local school is getting some much needed TLC.
