A Surprise on The Ellen Show

Our LA's BEST Site Coordinator at Limerick Elementary, Mayra Castillo recently attended The Ellen DeGeneres Show. But Mayra had no idea what would happen next... 

Ellen surprised her by bringing her onstage for a moving tribute to her work with young people at LA's BEST, as well as her work with kids with special needs during the regular school day. 

Ellen, with the help of Shutterfly, also acknowledged Mayra's dedication with a very generous gift... 

Thanks you, Mayra, for your hard work and for representing LA's BEST so well! We are so honored to have you on our staff and our students are lucky to have you as a role model.
