Teacher Who Took In 2 Homeless Students


Sonya Romero teaches kindergarten at Lew Wallace Elementary school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Every day, Sonya asks if her children have eaten. If they need clothes, or if they need to comb their hair or brush their teeth – not your typical morning routine – right?! Sonya is just a caring teacher that wants to ensure her students have their basic needs met before the day starts.

One night, two of Sonya’s former students were in crisis and needed a home, it was an emergency and Sonya took them in. Eventually, she ended up being their foster mom. When Ellen DeGeneres heard about Sonya and her selflessness, she invited her on the show. Ellen showed Sonya a secret video that had been recorded by the school. In true Ellen style, that wasn’t all. Ellen herself broke down and cried.

This video is definitely worth watching and then watching it over and over. It will take just a few minutes and you won’t regret the time spent on it. If you liked this video, share it with your friends, so they could also get to know this story.

Watching this video, one wants to join in singing. It’s not every day you can hear such a performance! I’d like to put on my headphones not to skip a bit of it! Incredible talent! Mother-nature did a good job and provided the person with such voice! Deepest gratitude for this wonderful song!
