Local teacher reminds us how kind our city can be
By Amelia Olson [ Mon Mar 23 2015 2:32 PM ]
It’s sometimes difficult to remember the rays of sunlight that inhabit our city. With tension surrounding our police force and homeless communities, Albuquerque can get caught up in the things we want to improve and lose sight of the people who are giving their hearts and souls to our beautiful city every single day to make it a better place. 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.
