Homeless Children

* "At This School, Homeless Isn't Hopeless" (Dec. 15) details a very sad commentary on our society, yet relates considerable heart at play within a difficult situation.

Beth Ojena, principal of Coeur d'Alene Elementary School, is an unsung hero of the LAUSD. As a now-retired 33-year veteran of the district, I distinctly recall Ojena as a bright and very caring person; couple intelligence with talent, strength, ability and compassion and one has a completed equation spelling success.
