Keep Teach in SLO

San Luis ObispoNovember 19, 2013 

The San Luis Coastal Unified School District meeting was crowded Tuesday, Feb. 19, for budget discussions. The largest group appeared to be supporters of Teach school, but comments included support for librarians and counselors, too.

I am worried that the Teach curriculum will be diminished if the program ends up in a location that doesn’t have the ability to support its accelerated curriculum. If Teach has to move, please move it to the old Pacheco site or Lizzie.

I went to Teach approximately 20 years ago, and the curriculum was one-of-a-kind. The teachers, staff and curriculum of Teach provided me the opportunity to become the best I could be. I am currently finishing my last year of law school and can thank Teach school for inspiring me to challenge myself. I also know many others Teach classmates whom I have kept up with throughout the years, and we still talk about the impact Teach had on us. It is my goal to stay in the SLO community, and when I have a family, I hope that Teach School will be available for my children.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
