This elementary school made a landmark in my life. I had a great professor (Mr. Ocana) in 1983. He was tough exigent but with a clear idea of what to expect from us as kids. He used to put us to jog at least 7 laps around the big surface behind of the elementary school every day in the morning. We were all in great physical condition. He rewarded us for each success and made us feel proud of being in the US. Mr. Ocana made us aware that we could reach any dream and to overcome any type of barriers. He was extremely devoted to us and took very serious our future in society. He praised sports and multiculturalism and opened a spirit of mutual acceptance and consideration in our minds. The school had lots of kids of different ethnical origins at that time; not only Hispanics which also increased the amazing experience. In 2001 I visit Greenwood and even if nobody knew me I was still very kindly received by those who where there as staff. It is true that I passed through other schools in my elementary cycle (4) and now I proudly hold three law degrees. But I will always remember what I received from Greenwood. God bless Mr. Ocana and the school staff wherever they are.
