Everyone, meet Zoe Banchieri!


Please explain what your job entails and the number of years you've been with SLAS.

I have been teaching ESL at San Leandro Adult School for almost five years. In July I will be the Lead Teacher for Orientation, Registration, and Assessment.


What is the best career lesson you've learned so far?

I am a teacher, not a presenter. If my students aren't understanding something, it is my responsibility to find a way to teach them. I will not give up.


What would you do for (a career) if you weren't doing this?

I would probably be teaching cooking in a high school or working in training somewhere. I was born to teach!


Who has influenced you the most when it comes to how you approach your work?

I have had a lot of influences, but the strongest one is probably my grandfather. He was a school superintendent and believed in the power of public education. It is a strong family value and I believe everyone deserves an opportunity for a good education. Another big influence is my son. He has autism and has taught me so much about neurodiversity and learning styles. I believe everyone can be taught.



What's something you've done, but will never do again?

I will never tile a bathroom again. I have done it two times. It is worth every penny to hire a professional.



What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?

Every weekend my family goes on a local hike. We have hiked over 200 miles from the Carquinez Bridge to Fremont on the Bay Ridge Trail.

Relief for Landlords and Tenants

Direct financial help for landlords and tenants impacted by the COVID-19 crisis is on its way.

Late this week, Governor Newsom signed SB 91 into law. This legislation directs federal COVID-19 relief funds to landlords and tenants. It also extends the current statewide eviction moratorium through June 30 while preventing the adoption of stricter moratoriums.


Under the Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) foreclosure and eviction moratorium, landlords who own FHA-insured single family properties cannot evict tenants until April 1, 2021. Landlords can, however, evict anyone living in a vacant or abandoned property. This is the fifth extension of the moratorium that was put in place under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) which became law on March 27, 2020. The FHA has also extended the Public and Indian Housing (PIH) eviction and foreclosure moratorium until March 31, 2021.

Many states and cities have also enacted emergency bans on evictions and other tenant protections due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Even if a federal moratorium does not apply, one of these might.

Effective date: January 21, 2021
