Morning Announcements Monday– November 5,  2012 

Good morning, Morgan.    Dr. Blandina Cardinas Ramirez was a lucky little girl.  Her father taught her a very important lesson early in life---the importance of learning from others.  Here’s what Dr. Ramirez says to us today:  I am eager to learn from others whether it is a person doing his/her homework or someone at the highest level of government.  My father believed you could learn from a farm worker or a president, and you should respect both equally.  Dr. Ramirez grew up with some valuable wisdom.  She eventually served under former President Jimmy Carter as the commissioner of the Administration for Children, Youth, and Families.  Her eagerness to learn from others helped her become an extraordinary American.  Today, remember Dr. Ramirez and notice all the opportunities to learn from others.
