Dr. Laurence Soteo, PhD, is set to begin his second year of teaching special education in the United States.  Laurence first came to the USA in 2013 with a Group Study Exchange team from D3850 in the Philippines.  He’s returned twice since then to attend D5110 conferences in Ashland and Coos Bay to reconnect with his many close friends throughout our District.  Included among these are Glen and Cathy Martz (Eugene Airport RC) and PDG Bill and Linda Grile (Coos Bay – North Bend RC), who are helping Laurence get settled in Salem where he will be teaching at N. Salem High School.  If anyone has a nice sofa and SmartTV that could be donated to help Laurence, please reach out to PDG Bill:  [email protected]
