WASHINGTON — For the firsttime since 1999, Americanemployers have added more than200,000 jobs a month for fourstraight months, offering moreevidence that the U.S. economy issteadily growing while much of Europe and Asia struggle.Last month’s gain of 217,000 jobs means the economy has final-ly recovered all the jobs lost to theGreat Recession. And it coincideswith indications that Americanconsumers have grown more confi-dent. Auto sales have surged.Manufacturers and service compa-nies are expanding.“I don’t think we have a boom,but we have a good economy grow-ing at about 3 percent,” said JohnSilvia, chief economist at WellsFargo. “We’repulling away fromthe rest of theworld.”Still, Friday’sreport from theLabor Departmentshowed that pay remains subparfor many workers, millions whowant full-time work are still stuckin part-time jobs and the numberof people out of work for morethan six months remains histori-cally high.Monthly job growth has aver-aged 234,000 for the past threemonths, up sharply from 150,000in the previous three. The unem-ployment rate, which is derivedfrom a separate survey, matchedApril’s 6.3 percent, the lowest inmore than five years.

After 34 years in San Mateo Countyschools, Rosanna Myres is saying “ciao”to teaching.Myres, who emigrated from Italy to SanFrancisco at the age of 8, has been teach-ing kindergarten at Cipriani ElementarySchool in Belmont for the past 18 yearsand also taught at Lomita Park School andSharp Park School. Awarded the “LoisGuthrie Award for Exemplary Education inSan Mateo County” and “Educator of theYear for the Belmont-Redwood ShoresElementary School District,” Myres hasinteracted with the more 700 students.“It’s very, very difficult to leave teach-ing,” she said. “But I will be connected toteaching children through volunteer work.… I have a brand-new baby granddaughterand I’m just being pulled. I love her todeath and want to be part of her life.”Myres, 64, received her bachelor’sdegree in psychology from San FranciscoState University before getting her teach-ing credential there as well.“I really can relate to the children whoare non-English speaking,” she said. “Iknow what they’re going through; that’sbeen another benefit of being a teacher.”Afew of her lessons included teachingabout heart health using real sheep hearts,showing students statistics about howmany young people have heart diseasebecause of what they eat. “I wanted them to really get a grasp aboutwhat this is about,” she said. “It really doesmake a difference in whatyou put in your body; it’sa big hit.”She also would trans-form the playhouse areainto pet hospitals, gro-cery stores and Chineserestaurants throughoutthe year to teach vocabu-lary, money manage-ment, counting, usingchopsticks, making reservations, learningtheir phone numbers and other skills.“Through these game activities, I getthem to do lots and lots of reading and writ-ing,” she said. Myres has lived in Burlingame with herhusband Jess Myres and their two childrenfor 30 years.Parents say that Myres will be missed.Parent Marit Hsich recounted how on thefirst day of school one year she was sched-uled for a C-section for her third child andwas nervous about her first who was enter-ing kindergarten at the same time. “I didn’t know Rosanna, but I began tocry, as my mom had recently passed awayand the emotions of such big events with-out her weighed so heavily upon me thatday,” she wrote in an email. “Dear Mrs.Myres knew just what to do to calm bothme and my daughter. … Being a student inMrs. Myres classroom is like Christmasevery day. … Tears as I write, as just know-ing Rosanna is among the walls of schoolmakes me, as a crazed mother of three busychildren, feel calmed and safe.”Other parents shared their appreciationfor Myres as well.“Our daughter started her education with akind and beautiful teacher our family willremember for the rest of our lives,” wroteScott and Julie Barton in an email. “Shebrought magic to her classroom throughher passion for her ‘kids,’love of teachingand creativity. She taught children to lovelearning and made her students and theirparents better people.”Another parent, Annette Robinson, hadthree children in Myresclass.“I had the opportunity to work in herclass many, many times and the ease inwhich she calms a crying child or soothesan incident between two children all with-out a raise in her voice and with a smile onher face (I always refer to her as the ‘childwhisperer’) is amazing,” Robinson wrotein an email. “Within the first few weeks of school, she knows each student and theirindividual personalities and needs and bythe end of the year, she sends them off tofirst-grade but never without a tear and asmile. … Rosanna has started all of her stu-dents’education with the best foundationthey could ever have and for that and all herlove to my kids, I will be forever thank-ful.”June 25 will be Myres’last day of school. Once done with school — asidefrom spending time with her new grand-daughter — Myres plans to travel andspend time with friends.
