I am SHOCKED... everyone LOVES
this teacher, now the principal is gone- so whats the problem? LET HIM STAY!
or else why has NO ONE contacted Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce?
he is an alumni of Burlingame High and can get this squared away ASAP.
Is there more to the story we do not know? I just do NOT understand why you would transfer a FANTASTIC teacher?

I'm a 2001 alum and I remember Mr. Nelson as being one of the most caring, honest and proactive teachers I have ever had. I would support any move by the SMUHSD that offers him the choice to stay at BHS.

Mr. Nelson made up the foundation that made my education at Burlingame High so invaluable. He's one of the most passionate, most intelligent and caring mentors I have come across, and it would be a tremendous loss to the school and students to witness his departure. The administration would be naive to consider him anything but a positive force and the heart and soul of BHS.

Kevin Nelson is a tremendous asset to the Burlingame community and BHS. He has worked tirelessly for the students, he mentors them and shows them how to advocate for themselves. He has inspired so many students and parents. Why would we ever think that it would be okay to loose such a cornerstone of our our educational foundation in to another community? Please, keep Kevin Nelson at Burlingame High School he has dedicated his life to this community and the community supports him completely.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm signing because MR.Nekson was my teacher when I went to BHS and I thought he was one of the best teachers! Burlingane has many teachers who are quick to judge and give up on there students, I think BHS needs to focus on other teachers and keep Nr. Nelson

Mr. Nelson has been an important influence on both my kids, through GATE programs, SAT prep, and college application support. He's a first rate person and any school that doesn't have a place for him is losing sight of its mission.

I've known Kevin for 15 years as a neighbor. My son is senior at BHS. BHS needs more teachers like Kevin, both for his experience and his zeal for excellence.
