Through my lens

The  school rests on top of a steep hill in a foggy neighborhood. The wide paths and spaces and green plants relax the students and faculty during the many hours they rest. Bright and spacious classrooms support the students during their process of learning and protect their personal comfort zones while keeping a great diversity of cultures within the school.

People with power

Who do we look up to? As young adults we look towards our parents, siblings, teachers, and other authority figures as heroes and people we respect and basically our role models. How are we supposed to look up to people such as our parents and teachers. if some demonstrate hypocritical authority. One example is the no hat policy at Lincoln. Many teachers, I’ve seen tell their students not to wear their hats in the school or during class time, but later on you see the same teacher wearing their own hat! Not just teachers but people with authority in general.


    It really bothers me when you see teachers, or parents, or anyone telling you you are not allowed to do something and then they go ahead and do the exact thing that you weren’t supposed to. Just the other day a girl in my class was caught texting in class. According to the rules you aren’t allowed to have cell phones out during school hours unless its lunch. Five minutes after my teacher confiscated her cell phone, he took  his own phone out checking his messages. Hypocritical much! I absolutely hate it when you see people who are supposed to be our authority figures to whom we are supposed to want to be like, respect, and confide in. How can we do this if we’re told not to do something then they go around doing it themselves. It makes me wonder and think about who I really look up to.

Kevin Chojzak died on the evening of December 23rd, while he was visiting his mother and sister in Turlock, California. He was a special education paraprofessional at Lincoln for two years and worked in San Francisco Unified School District. He was also a very active member of the Educators for a Democratic Union, according to Tom Edminster, Lincoln English language learner teacher and building union representative. He and Chojzak were close and spent many lunches together. “Kevin was one of the kindest and smartest and most modest men I have ever known,” said Edminster in an email that was sent to Lincoln staff.  A memorial for Chojzak is displayed in the main hallway. It described Chojzak as “an excellent paraprofessional, a gentle and caring man.” 


    “A one-time memorial scholarship is being established in Kevin’s honor and it will be given to a special education student who is active in community service,” according to the display.


    A memorial for Chojzak was held on Saturday, January 15.

 



Mike Gragnani


    Boys’ Varsity Basketball Coach Mike Gragnani passed away in January 2011. Since the fall of 2006, Gragnani has been helping and mentoring the Mustangs in many different ways. “I had a lot of respect for him because he did have the best interest of the students,” said Kenyatta Scott, Lincoln math teacher and Athletics Director. “Over the years, he supported other sports with his attendance, checking in on what other [student athletes] were doing; he was here on campus checking on his players’ grades.” By putting this much extra effort into his job, Coach Mike displayed exceptional work ethics as an off-site coach.


    Scott also described Gragnani as a “strong individual” who was committed and always had the best in mind for his players.


    “He left a good legacy at Lincoln,” said Scott. “The best compliment I can give [to his current team] is magnum opus. [This] is probably one of his better teams, I think, in his career.”


    A vigil was held for Gragnani on Monday January 17th. The funeral was on the following Tuesday.
