Edward Cavanaugh, beloved teacher and founder of Get Out And Learn at Downtown High School, died in July 2015.

We miss him. The Cavanaugh family requests that you honor his legacy with a gift to Get Out and Learn to ensure his spirit lives on.

Ed was a different kind of teacher. Ed’s kids did not sit in rows, and Ed did not change young lives by telling them how high mountains were. Instead, Ed took them into the wilderness to scale mountains they didn’t think they could climb. He didn’t just teach math. He taught craftsmanship and care through boat building. Ed didn’t just teach academics, he taught life. 

While GOAL will take a hiatus for the first semester of 2015, the Downtown High School administration, SFUSD, community partners, and co-teacher, Erin Waddell, are fully committed to continuing the Get Out and Learn program, and to build on Ed’s legacy.

Please make a gift in Ed’s name to support his life’s work.
