“The funds provided by the Susan T. Cheng Teachers’ Quality of Life Fund have made a significant improvement in my daily commute. First of all, since I commute from Oakland, the cost of the commute can be as high as $250 per month, and prior to the commuter benefits, that represented a serious chunk of money out of my budget. Prior to the allocations of funds, I started earlier each day and either caught a ride to BART, walked, or rode my bike in order to save money. Now that this is not an issue, I leave the house without a thought about how I might conserve funds, and just catch the bus. You may be thinking, “wait, wasn’t he getting more exercise by walking or biking before we provided the funds?” That occurred to me, too, but as it turns out, I find that I go on a longer walk with my dog in the morning and the evening, and thus get just as much exercise as before. So, the commuter benefit has lessened my expense, increased the convenience and reliability of my commute…and made Buster (my dog) happier and healthier!”—Jack Crow, Middle School Teacher
