On May 11, 2009 Mrs. Linda Dysart's class was informed that she would not be returning as she was being let go. Holding back tears she explained to the class how all of her classes had been redistributed to other teachers or completely taken off the available classes. Classes like drama, speech, and psychology were all given to other teachers to instruct. Classes like creative writing were gotten rid of.
She also coached both flags and show choir; she herself has not been informed of what is to come of those and is not even sure if she will be allowed to continue coaching them. Linda Dysart is an exceptional teacher and lady. If she is let go so many people will be let down. All the students taking, or planning to take, her prior mentioned classes will not be able to experience what an amazing teacher she is. If let go students in drama, psychology, speech, flags, and show choir will all be let down as they will not have the teaching of Mrs. Linda Dysart behind them.
She is an exceptional role model for Delta High School students and is one of the best we've seen in communicating, sympathizing, and directing students.
We, the undersigned, call on the School District 50J Board of Education to allow Mrs. Linda Dysart to continue teaching at Delta High School.
We ask one of the following to be taken into action.
A: Mrs. Linda Dysart will be able to co-instruct the drama class with Mrs. Debbie Howser, who has agreed to take on drama class regardless. Drama class will also be extended to a year long class rather than one semester to allow for better instruction from two teachers excelling in the field and so that the students can put on a better show. Mrs. Linda Dysart will also be given the rights to coach both flags and the dancing behind show choir.
B: Mrs. Linda Dysart will be able to teach one semester of drama following a semester taught by Mrs. Debbie Howser, who has agreed to take on drama regardless. Mrs. Linda Dysart will also be given the rights to coach both flags and the dancing behind show choir. We the undersigned all believe it is in the student body's and school's best interest to allow Mrs. Linda Dysart to continue teaching for Delta High School.
