The Daily Journal has a nice piece on former BHS principal Larry Teshara's retirement
Larry Teshara, director of the San Mateo Adult School and former Burlingame High School principal, announced plans to retire at the end of the school year after 50 years of working in education across San Mateo County.
Looking back, Teshara, 73, attributed his longevity to a boundless passion for teaching and influencing the lives of young learners.
“My primary interest and career have been the same thing, and I consider that to be a blessing,” said Teshara, who came to the San Mateo Union High School District in 1972 as a 28-year-old counselor at Crestmoor High School in San Bruno after working as a teacher for five years in the San Bruno Park Elementary School District.
He transitioned from his counseling role to become the assistant principal at Aragon High School, before being named principal of Burlingame High School, where he stayed for 15 years.
