One More Good Reason to Become a Teacher

Jun 17, 2011

Kudos to former Hometown Pasadena editor John Stephens for making this video this morning at Sierra Madre School. The students, faculty and parents, with the help of the Sierra Madre Fire Department, staged a heart-tugging flashmob (which began as a fake fire drill) to say goodbye to retiring principal Gayle Bluemel, who we profiled right here on Hometown Pasadena. To say she is adored by the community is an understatement, and if you want to see a public school thriving, despite draconian cuts, go spend some time on this campus.
