  HONORING THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF BUDDY ALBRO, NORMA KRUEGER ELEMENTARY 
                       SCHOOL TEACHER OF THE YEAR

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. HENRY CUELLAR

                                of texas

                    in the house of representatives

                       Wednesday, April 27, 2005

  Mr. CUELLAR. Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize the many 
accomplishments of Buddy Albro, Norma Krueger Elementary School Primary 
Campus Teacher of the Year.
  Mr. Albro decided to enter the profession of teaching relatively late 
in life. Previously, he had been a successful worker in the oil and gas 
industry. He decided that he wanted to make a difference in the lives 
of children, and went back to school at Southwest Texas State 
University, where he graduated with honors.
  He has now been a teacher with the Marion Independent School District 
for eight years, seven of which were spent teaching the third and 
fourth grades. Currently, he is the elementary physical education 
teacher for grades K-5.
  Mr. Albro believes that every child has the potential to do great 
things, and he works hard to make learning fun for his students. He 
believes that the most important component of an elementary education 
is becoming a good reader; this skill, he feels, sets the stage for a 
lifetime of success.
  Mr. Buddy Albro is an outstanding educator, dedicated to the welfare 
and happiness of the children of Marion. His dedication is a tremendous 
example for other educators, and I am happy to have the opportunity to 
honor him here today.
