A layoff would mean students will not get the excellent remote learning course I’ve prepared for the fall.

My name is Peter Weiss. This is my 10th year teaching Chemistry at UC Santa Cruz. For me, a June 30th lay-off means financial hardship for my family of 4 since I provide the health insurance benefits for the family and we have incurred some larger than normal medical expenses this year. For my students, they will sorely miss my super-organized, equitable, and engaging chemistry course. I have spent the last year slowly transitioning to online learning (I have 200-500 students each quarter!). Now that we are fully online, my class does not miss a beat.
