This #warriorwednesday SCS would like to recognize Victoria “Tori” Baca, the nurse assistant at San Antonio Elementary. Tori, is probably best known for her singing. She grew up in a musical family and has become quite the celebrity performing in many local venues over the years. What you might not know about Ms. Tori is that she has been working with Socorro Consolidated Schools for about eleven years. Prior to moving to San Antonio, she has worn many hats. Tori started out as a classroom assistant. From there, she went on to share some of her other talents and interests as she taught physical education. Ms. Tori also taught “Zumba Kids” to all the kindergarten through fifth grade students at Parkview Elementary. She has shown her tenacity and willingness to work hard and do her job the best she can since day one. Tori is not the kind of person that will sit and wait to be asked. She is very eager to step up and step in whenever and however she can. Ms. Tori also shares her passion for fitness outside the school setting. She spends her evenings helping others help themselves as a personal trainer and fitness coach. She teaches Zumba classes as well as a high intensity fitness class several times during the week. Hats off to you Ms. Tori!

He has worked in the District for over 10 years and joined the Midway family as a custodian at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year.

He always goes above and beyond as he keeps the school looking amazing while volunteering to help out anywhere that he may be needed. Although he certainly works hard, he also never misses a chance for fun and can always be found with a smile on his face. Smiley is more often known for his skills on the court as a referee over the past 30 years. SCS is lucky to have such a wonderful and dedicated employee! #onceawarrioralwaysawarrior

It's #warriorwednesday, and today we are recognizing Jean Ryan, SHS Nurse. Jean, who has been a nurse for 46 years, came to SHS in August when she retired from Socorro General Medical Group, where she provided primary care as a nurse practitioner for ten years. She first came to New Mexico in 1994 to practice as a nurse practitioner at the Alamo Navajo Reservation as a Public Health Service Scholarship payback site. Jean says she's been drawn back to the Socorro area many times and has now lived in this area for a total of 16 + years, the longest she's lived anywhere as an adult. She loves the sunsets, night sky, and clouds of NM. She likes to read mystery and fantasy, garden, share puns, and waxes about the love of her life- a 120 pound Great Dane named Duke. Jean goes above and beyond her call of duty and has helped our staff and students in so many ways. She is always willing to do extra tasks as needed and has prioritized getting to know all of our students. Nurse Ryan has done an amazing job with COVID. She takes it very seriously, and no matter how stressful that can get, she takes it in stride and does it with a smile on her face. This district is blessed to have her on our staff. Thank you!!!
