As a concerned parent and community member, I want to express my concern and dissapointment with the displacement of our valued piano teacher, Dr. Chatterji at Hesperia Hight School. Due to State education cuts, we are now losing our very much needed piano teacher. Dr. Chatterji has established a wonderful piano program to help our kids learn a talent that will has and will have a great impact in their lives. My son, Andrew Vela has been taking piano lessons from Dr. Chatterji for nine months and he has learned tremendously, not only to play piano, read music, but also to come out of his shell. My son, is becoming more and more disciplined, he has a better attitude and absolutely loves music. Music has become such a huge part of his life now. My son takes the bus from Sultana High School to Hesperia School for his piano lessons. He looks forward to these lessons every week. My son tells me that he feels very lucky to be taking lessons from Dr. Chatterji. My son feels that Dr. Chatterji is more than a piano teacher, he is a mentor to him and someone very important in his life. A lot of children and families will be greatly affected by the displacement of Dr. Chatterji. We hope that you let our community know about this great loss we are about to have in our school system. Our community needs to show Dr. Chatterji our appreciation and support. Thank you for your attention to this very, very important matter.
