More Reasons Why Living Classroom Matters
The end of the year provides me the opportunity to recognize and thank so many people who make it possible for Living Classroom to provide environmental education to thousands of students each year.
Let me start this roll call of recognition and gratitude with thanking and recognizing our hardworking Board of Directors, led by Vicki Moore (also Living Classroom’s Founder), “veteran” Don Arnold, and new members this year Pamela Devenney, Deepika Gajaria , and Mallory Matthews.
Huge bouquets of thanks to Living Classroom’s amazing Instructional Team led by Alexis Li and classroom support from Susan Harder, Kim Reynolds, Anne Furlong, and our two newest staff members Mallory Shiroyama and Maha Lakshimarayanan; our resourceful and multitalented Garden Support team: Patti Berryhill, Michelle Bonfilio, and Jody McCalmont; and our talented and nimble Administrative Support staff: Natalie Elefant, Stefani Brandt, and Kavita Dave Coombe.
None of this would have been possible without the support of you -- our supporters and donors. Many thanks to El Camino Health Care District, the Santa Clara Open Space Authority, Valley Water, Supervisor Otto Lee (URJGENT grant), the Leslie Family Foundation, the Good Soil Family Foundation, Walgreens, Target, and Google. Our partners in education: the Mountain View School District, Campbell Union School District, Braly School, the Santa Clara County Office of Education, and the Santa Clara Parks and Recreation Department for their support and encouragement. You continued to have confidence in our work and provided the means for us to continue to do it. THANK YOU for an amazing year!
