target commercial: 2nd grade teacher

I've been meaning to write about this Target commercial for over a month...

This super enthusiastic (Filipina?) educator's got the list of back-to-school supplies your kid is going to need:

Yeah, it's Target. But I have to admit, she's pretty charming. Add this one to the long list of Target spots prominently featuring Asians over the last few years. I've always found this a little odd... but I'm not complaining. Random trend? I'd like to think someone out there is responding to positive feedback.
