Superintendent Dr. Kolek and the New Canaan Board of Education: Reinstate beloved 5th grade teacher Michael Patrona

This petition made change with 285 supporters!


Recently, 5th grade teacher Michael Patrona was asked to resign from Saxe Middle School in New Canaan, CT. Apparently, Michael's certification was not up to date.

It seems that he is victim of his own oversight, but also a victim of a field that does little to value performance. Michael is a gifted and passionate educator. He loves teaching and students. The passionate pleas of the public in New Canaan are outlined in the comments of this article (http://newcanaan.patch.com/articles/popular-fifth-grade-teacher-out-at-saxe#comment_6836344) from the New Canaan Patch.

Please sign this petition to show students and Michael that you value true educators and will stop at nothing to see that they are in the classrooms.

Also, please attend the April 1st Board of Education meeting in New Canaan and be heard, if for no other reason but to let the Board and Michael know how important he was to the New Canaan community and why he should be reinstated.
