LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy has forced me to remove all my advertising to keep my job as a teacher. Soon I will have to close the website without the ad revenue. Please sign my petition to the Superintendent so I may put ads back on my website and keep it open. You can also email him at Superintendent@LAUSD.net Thanks, Lisa Gehman Thorne
