2/7/09 - Playing in a band called "No Class" are teachers from left, Keiko Kirby from Poly High, Jill Jeffrey from Wilson High, and Rachel Suojanen of Poly High. The drummer, not a teacher, is Ronnie Ceiago. The band was performing in the Rock the Teachers Festival at the Wilson High School Saturday afternoon.
Teachers from local schools came to the festival to perform after attending a five week music program from The Rock Club, LLC.
The Rock Club, LLC, and the Adopt a Teacher Foundation has joined forces to raise funds to provide grants back to the teachers for classroom costs that normally come out of their own pocket and to focus on bridging the gap between teachers and students, as well as sparking a love of music in youth.
