Janie Romero, Hubert Humphrey ES

Lori Jane Romero - better known as “Janie”- is giving away her plethora of educational materials to anyone for the taking by July 24, for that is when she will be waving goodbye to 31 years of teaching in Albuquerque Public Schools. Her entire career has been spent at Hubert Humphrey Elementary.

Janie began her teaching odyssey at HHES in 1983 while collecting shoes and other glittery sparkling attire. She has been an invaluable asset to the HHES staff and community, serving as a mentor to many (including the principal). Janie exemplifies the term “life long learner”. She always wanted to be a teacher growing up. Janie had a firm belief that “children are our future” and felt compelled that she needed to help children find the love for education so when they grew up-they would do outstanding things with their lives.

She has a long list of mathematicians, artists, engineers, CEOs, teachers to name a few as former students whose lives she touched and have come back to thank her.

Janie has been happily married for 30 years and has one son, Christopher. She is looking forward to her second career as a clothes buyer for a high-end sparkly department store as well as visiting her family around the country and abroad.

A reception will be held for Janie at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 21 at the school.
