Mrs. Berrera winds up in the middle of a romantic rivalry, as she has drawn the attention of both Principal Skinner and Bart.

“We thought it’d be interesting if both Bart and Skinner have a crush on the same woman,” Simpsons executive producer Al Jean said. “She feels Skinner is a wounded soul that she wants to take care of. She is a vet like Skinner, and that’s his attraction.”

He also says there is potential for Sofia to reprise her role in later episodes.
