You might have noticed that I don’t generally use this column to talk directly about my children.
Today, that will change as I feel the need to elaborate on one particular senior in the class of 2014.
My son Chandler will graduate from the halls of Los Alamos High School this Saturday.
He is a pretty wonderful young man and I believe that is due, in no small part, to the many wonderful staff members of Los Alamos Public Schools and no, I won’t be able to name them all and for that, I do apologize.
However, it all started with the most wonderful woman, named Becky Sims, whom I have spoke of before and feel the need to call out, just one more time.
It continued from there with Mrs. Tricia Javernick, Mrs. Laura Gallimore, Ms. Valerie Adams, Mrs. Cathy Wiget, Mr. Joshua Wells and then Mrs. Kassandra Brandt, when he left mid-year and finally a rounded out our elementary years with Mrs. Debbie Smith. I should mention Mrs. Carol Hermes, who had the audacity to move to another school, but Chamisa couldn’t keep all of the love to herself.
We then ventured on to middle school and more wonderful people like Mr. Curtis Terrill and Rita Sanchez.
