On Sept. 30, an article titled "Teachers challenge summer school," was published stating that the La Cañada Teachers Association is blocking the efforts of the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation to host a summer school program at La Cañada High School.
As a teacher in this district, I am a member of this union. However, I had no idea that this action had been taken. I was dismayed to see this, particularly in the economic climate in the state of California.
Our administrative team and elected school board have been fiscally responsible while giving the teachers here a supportive, quality environment in which to work. We love our students and our jobs. It was my mistaken assumption that our LC Teachers Association would do everything within its power to work as a team with school administrators to keep programs in tact.
