Michelle Barsano is a local Taoseno and now our 37th partner family. She’s a teaching assistant at Taos Charter School assisting children with special needs, is currently going to school, and has been raising her two sons, Cante and Wanbli, all as a single mother. In her application Michelle wrote about Taos as a community that she has loved living in, “I see myself growing in this community in a personal and professional way”. We feel that Michelle adds value to Taos through her work, her strength, and her stories. We’re grateful to be able to give her this opportunity to live and raise her family here in a stable home. Michelle's house will be built along side the Parison's in this years competition build.
