Sylvia was my Spanish Teacher at Abe Hubert Junior High. She was stern but kind and caring. I always knew she wanted us to learn. I had the privilege of seeing her while working go at the High School. She would Bring her class to tour and prepare them for the high school and she always introduced me as her prior student. She always had a smile and a laugh for me. I’m so sorry I didn’t get to see her but I know she’s with the lord. I will get to see her again and she will have a wonderful smile for me. That smile that always made me feel special. ❤️✝️❤️

When I went to Garden city high school she asked me to join the Spanish club and told me to invite and bring my friends to the next meeting , so me and my friends come walking in , she wasn’t expecting me to bring or invite 5-6 of my white Friends , “ She was like “ “ Quien son estos gueros “??? My friends replied “ Orarle Mrs. Orasco “,” Que pasa Mrs. Orasco “ Was Happaning Mrs. Orasco “🤣🤣🤣 , she looked at me and said “ I’ll deal with you later!!! You were a great inspiration and caring not only as a teacher but a person that cared about the Hispanic youths in her community. You will be Miss but never forgotten, may you Rest In Peace!!!🙏❤️🙏❤️🙏
