Tamara Garfio of Maywood Elementary is one of 60 instructors nationwide to receive the Milken Educator Award. 'I'm passionate, I know that,' she says. 'You truly have to like what you do.'
The Maywood Elementary Flowers, clad in sky blue shirts and sunflower headbands, performed a song in the auditorium. School district officials and well-dressed guests looked on, the news cameras rolled and third-grade teacher Tamara Garfio sat with her class near the back of the room.
