CHEE DODGE | FROM PAGE 8 “But I began to love the place.” As part of her conferences with students and their families, Redulla-Managaytay said that she sometimes travels to remote areas on the outer edges of Gallup, and the parents of her students greet her kindly. “This will always be my second home,” she said. All of the conferences with parents are to help her with her main focus: pushing her students to do well. This includes encouraging them to prepare for state tests in hopes of becoming proficient in areas such as mathematics and English and language arts. “I want my kids to have good scores, so I was pushing them to pass their tests,” RedullaManagaytay said. “While their success varies and is subjective, I really push them with everything.” In this way, many people see Redulla-Managaytay as motherly, she said. But she embraces

May 19, for $200, $500, and $400, respectively. One check wa s signed and cashed by Ashlee Ortiz and two by Moses Alonzo for a combined total of $1,100. According to the police report, the victim, Ernesto Fuentes, stated that he was familiar with the name “Moses Alonzo,” as a man by that name used to live behind him, but had reportedly moved out of the area.

will be felt across not only this nation, but the world. A Marine and Navajo Code Talker, he played a crucial role in winning the Second World War, preserving freedoms for Americans and many more people worldwide. The debt we owe for that service, and the service of all Code Talkers, can never be repaid,” she said. “A senator for more than 40 years, he represented

his constituents with grace, wisdom, and tenacity. Through the relationships he built and respect he earned, he was able to secure innumerable crucial investments for New Mexico communities, in particular Native communities. His record of service is unblemished, and his unwavering commitment to his people will forever serve as a shining example.”

that idea and trains her students to be responsible and to act respectfully. “Some parents expressed to me that their kids are not respecting them at home,” she said. “I talked to the kids about it. I told them parents are parents, and they’re owed respect.” After speaking with some of these students, RedullaManagaytay said their parents later thanked her after they saw improvement in their children’s attitudes. This past week marked the final days of RedullaManagaytay at Chee Dodge Elementary. She said that she will be moving to New York City next week, so her children can attend to their studies, and then she will be touring Europe, before returning to the Philippines this year. But this is not goodbye, she added. She expects to return to the area in several years. Having lived near Gallup for over a decade, she said that she’s had experiences where former students who are now doctors,

engineers, and serving in the military have come up to her and thanked her for what she did for them. She said she hopes to have that same experience when she returns. “I always tell the kids to learn more, and I’ll see them in high school or college,” she said. “I want them to have a college degree.” Redulla-Managaytay wished to thank her students, the parents of Chee Dodge Elementary, and the administration, principal, and Gallup McKinley County Schools for their support. More than anything, she hopes that parents and students will see the value of motivating their students to achieve higher success. “I believe your potential will be discovered if you push yourself,” she said.
