Classes cut? Not for dedicated Harvest Park teacher

Original post made on Aug 6, 2012

Cuts that eliminated special summer school programs for gifted students weren't enough to stop Lynn Gatehouse, a teacher at Harvest Park Middle School. Gatehouse, on her own, created a 501(c)(3) charity and put together her own program, holding two two-week sessions and bringing in more than 160 students from San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore with some coming from as far away as Fremont, Santa Clara and Cupertino.

Wonderful idea, wonderful kids! Middle school and high school volunteers are the CREAM of the Student Crop. Hope they receive some recognition from the District and from the teachers of this program, a letter to go into the cum or to be used as a reference for college.
