Everett High School Junior Tyaire Bragg has seen plenty of teachers come and go, without explanation: "Everyday we wouldn't know what to expect, or if we would have a different teacher because our real teacher wasn't there or was laid off."
Making it hard for him to focus on a lesson plan when it keeps changing.
"Every teacher has a different teaching style, so having a different teacher everyday with subs coming in...you just couldn't get used to the style of teaching which made it tough to take a test."
He says he's lucky to have a teacher like Mr. Alfonso Salais, who has been at Everett for 18 years; enough time for him to see layoffs in the school every year at this time for as long as he can remember.
The Spanish Teacher/LSEA Vice President is surprised there will not be layoffs this coming month, but says with several schools consolidating and closing, there will still be a lot of tough job switches and re-assignments.
"At this moment, it's not really stable, because you still have people saying where are you gonna be, where are you gonna go, and where are you going to land."
So even though everyone is keeping their jobs for now, they're still left wondering which school they will be working at, and if their pay will change.
Despite the lack of pink slips now, the teachers aren't in the clear.
Several teachers say layoffs could come in September, when school is back in session and the district revisits the budget.
