Grier Visits Bellaire High School
HISD Superintendent Terry Grier visited three classes at Bellaire High School Friday, during his first day on the job as the school district’s top educator.
Grier questioned students about their opinion of Bellaire High School, and got resounding agreement about the need for more bathrooms, more parking and “better food” at the campus.
Grier said there might be a quick way to “do something” about the bathroom problems, and promised a food fix. But, he didn’t hold out much hope that parking at the crowded campus would improve any time soon.
One student suggested “block scheduling” but was voted down by her classmates, and apparently by Grier, who responded, “You’ll get plenty of block scheduling in college.”
Grier was accompanied on his visit to the campus by District 5 school board trustee Dianne Johnson.
In a brief hallway encounter with one Bellaire student, Grier encouraged baseball pitcher Bobby Scott on his game and his studies.
Grier also met with Spanish teacher Rosalba Garcia, who has taught at the school for 27 years and in HISD for a total of 49 years.
