Misla Barco, a high school Spanish teacher at East Palo Alto Academy, was immediately suspicious when she was asked to be at Vice Principal Jeffrey Camarillo's office for a recruitment meeting at 7:30 a.m.
“He kept texting me, ‘Don’t be late. Don’t be late,’” Barco recalled. “I was thinking, this isn’t for recruitment. I was so worried.”
The nine-year veteran of the academy, a charter school operated by Stanford’s School of Education, was, indeed, in for a surprise.
