“Ignacio Elementary, Ignacio School District and the Ignacio community embraced me last fall when I became ill and underwent brain surgery. They rallied around me by sending letters, pictures, gifts, and emails. I am not able to attend the Fun Run being held in my honor on Saturday, May 6. I am in Englewood, Colorado at Craig Hospital. Craig is a rehabilitation hospital where the doctors and therapists are helping me get ready to return to teaching this fall.
They call me a superhero. I am humbled by this title; however, the entire Ignacio community has become my hero. Without their support and encouragement, I may not be where I am today.”
