I’m happy and grateful for having loving people in my life.
Let's take a moment to celebrate the extraordinary newest Consuela Viva Babe Maria, a true gem in the Woodburn community! Maria wears many hats—devoted wife, caring mom, dedicated bilingual teacher, and a ridiculously awesome pillar of support for those around her.
In the challenging landscape of the past few years, Maria has demonstrated exceptional strength and resilience in and out of her classroom. After enduring a traumatic birthing experience, she not only conquered personal health challenges but also triumphantly returned nine months later to her passion for teaching bilingual students. Her commitment to her students, especially during the trials of online learning, showcases her unyielding dedication to their well-being.
Beyond the classroom, Maria's heart of gold shines brightly in her neighborhood. On Maria's birthday, when a house fire tragedy struck her friend Sierra's family, she opened her home in the wee hours of the morning, providing support, care, and a comforting haven. This selfless act is a testament to Maria's compassionate nature, extending her love and support to a friend during such a challenging time.
"Mi amiga Maria is an amazing person inside and out. She is loving and accepting of all. I want her to know what an amazing human she is and shower her with just a fraction of the love she pours out to those around her." shared Sierra, who nominated Maria.
Maria's life mantra is "I’m happy and grateful for having loving people in my life." She credits that having loving and supportive people in her life is why she can accomplish what she has accomplished thus far.
Maria, you are an inspiration to us all! Your resilience, kindness, and dedication have not gone unnoticed. As you join the Consuela's Viva Babes community, we hope this recognition brings a bit of the joy and appreciation you so richly deserve. Here's to you, Maria—thank you for being an incredible force for good!
