Bullets Over Broadway the Musical is filled with memorable old style musical numbers including “Up a Lazy River”, “I’m Sitting on Top of the World”, “Let’s Misbehave”, “Tain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness If I do”, “Yes, We Have No Bananas” and humor filled numbers you may not recognize (but will soon be humming) including “The Hot Dog Song” and “Here Comes the Hot Tamale Man”.

Noah Mac at Dublin High School

A Dublin native, Noah made his singing début at the tender age of seven, with a heartfelt tribute to his sister, Stevie, at her funeral. He sang one of her favorite songs, “Judy and the Dream of Horses” by Belle and Sebastian. This provided his family with much-needed comfort, and also, according to his mother, made them “very proud and very shocked”, as it was the first time they realized his talent for singing. Noah credits his sister Stevie for introducing him to alternative music, a genre he says he might never have listened to otherwise.

Dublin Teachers, District to Return to Bargaining Table Amid Protests, Work-to-Rule Campaign

September 28, 2017

DUBLIN, CA–It’s no secret to social media savvy Dublin Unified School District parents and students that teachers and the District are currently in the middle of a difficult contract negotiation. DUSD and its teachers have been operating without a new contract for 16 months. DUSD and DTA (Dublin Teachers Association) return to the bargaining table tomorrow with salary adjustments and medical benefits as key issues.

Flyer handed to to parents and students arriving at Dublin High School this morning

This morning teachers were spotted handing out flyers to parents and students as they arrived at school sites. Social networks have been lit up this week with passionate statements from Dublin Teachers Association leaders, teachers, parents and some DUSD Trustees. Earlier this week teachers began a work-to-rule campaign, limiting their work day to their contractual obligations. Despite social network chatter of a teacher’s strike, a prospect that understandably terrifies parents and college-bounds seniors, there is no imminent (legal) strike action possible.

The Dublin Unified School District issued a statement yesterday which was followed by a response from the Dublin Teachers Association. Both are included below, unedited.

Dublin High School Chemistry Teacher Brad Vereen on the Importance of Science Education

September 24, 2017

vereenDUBLIN, CA–2017 is Mr. Brad Vereen’s sixth year of teaching AP Chemistry at Dublin High School, and his fifteenth year overall. A California native, Mr. Vereen has lived in Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, and Thousand Oaks, and attended high school in Newbury Park in Ventura County. He received his associate’s degree from Moorpark College, later transferring to UC Berkeley, majoring in cell biology.

After obtaining his MBA, Mr. Vereen began teaching at the College of Business and Economics at California State University East Bay in Hayward, while simultaneously working in Silicon Valley. Finding that he enjoyed teaching his college class more than his job in the private sector, he decided to transition to a teaching career in 2003.

“The first time I was ever in front of a class was at Wells Middle School,” he recalls. “I was a student teacher there for a few months. I then came to Dublin High to complete my student teaching under Mrs. Levak-Cohen, and was very fortunate to have been hired the following year to teach physical science.” Mr. Vereen has taught chemistry, earth science, and biological science over the last fifteen years, and has also served as Energy Manager for the entire district. He is also the co-lead teacher of the DHS Science Department.

Dublin Unified School District and Community Continue Transition to “Trustee-Area” Elections

September 14, 2017

DUBLIN, CA–On Monday evening members of the community offered their thoughts on how Dublin School Board district lines should be redrawn for future elections. This action was in response to a demand letter that alleged violations of the California Voting Rights Act. As previously reported, this is not a new phenomenon. The movement away from “At-Large” to “By-Trustee-Area” elections has gained significant momentum in the golden state. Almost all school districts that have received a demand letter have made active movements to change – rather than to fight/fund what could become lengthy litigation.

Dublin High School Sophomore Experiences Thrill of Flying in Six Week Aviation Course

September 13, 2017

DUBLIN, CA–Like many high school students, I had no idea what I wanted to do for a career. I have many interests such as art, music, and engineering, but none seemed like a profession I wanted to pursue. Going into the Engineering Academy at Dublin High School has helped me expand my knowledge of different engineering careers and pathways; however, I was still apprehensive about what I wanted to become. Unexpectedly in the middle of my summer, I received an email from Ms. Eugene Chou, the Dublin High Engineering and Design Academy Coordinator, informing me of an opportunity to enroll in a six-week aviation course held by the Patriots Jet Team Foundation (PJTF). Despite my limited knowledge of aviation, I decided to attend the course. Little did I know, but this course is what helped me decide on what career I wanted to pursue for the rest of my life.
