THE WAY FORWARD
COVID has given school districts a tough lesson about the job market
In March 2021, Mary Noon had no plans to retire from teaching science at Pottsgrove High School, but then came COVID. None of those who have taught biology, applied sciences and anatomy since 1999 entered the teaching profession late in life, so she was not going to study for 30 years. But she hoped to achieve this by 2022. It is then that a new pedagogical contract should be discussed and the county is likely to be offered a pension to reduce pay by replacing higher-paying teachers with newer, lower-paid ones.
The pandemic has brought students new and different ways of learning
Whether on screen or in person, the way students and college faculty interact because of the pandemic hasn’t really changed much. The whole point is to get personal contact and communication, which can happen both in remote classes and in private lessons. Erin Travis, an associate professor of communication and media, said students and faculty at West Chester University are open to a variety of ways to learn. “Now we have more options,” Travis said. “We are flexible and able to adapt, and it benefits students.”
Remember me? Cincinnati Parker was killed when a gunman fired on Chester’s crowd
His name was Cincin Parker at birth, but the family called him Du Man. At age 7, Parkinson’s Cincinnati “Du Man” had four best friends: his brothers, Randolph, 8, and Yahzir, 10; and his sisters, 12-year-old Yahsionna and 6-year-old Azoria. Unfortunately, their special family ties were forever severed on April 5, 2020, when one of 14 bullets fired by an elusive militant into a crowd of people on Swarts Street in Highland Gardens Chester’s section hit Do Men in the face, instantly killing him.
The Backyard Beans Coffee Company is celebrating five years at the Lansdale store
It’s been five years since the Backyard Beans Coffee Company opened its downtown Lansdale coffee shop, but co-owners Matt and Laura Adams say they’re just getting started. “I want to use Backyard Beans as a way to help develop Main Street Lansdale,” Matt said. The Adam family has dominated a local coffee shop in the area, bringing many new blends to the city since the business was founded in their backyard in Lansdale in 2013. Four years later, the couple’s coffee shop downtown, located at 408 W. Main St. , offers customers drinks from the full espresso bar, as well as dishes for breakfast and lunch from the kitchen.
“Kenrick 12” continues to strengthen friendships
You can imagine this as a scene from a movie. Twelve children, classmates at a small Catholic high school and teammates on the football field, form a bond that is built on laughter, companionship, teamwork, sports and life lessons. A connection that, even after 40 years, turns out to be unbreakable. But when these boys walked the halls of Bishop Kenrick’s high school and ran across the field before a football practice, it wasn’t a page out of the script. It was the first chapter of a book about love and loss, and the friendship that binds them together forever.
Phyllis’s notebook: Phyllis’s resentment forgets to bring his game And amid the April cold
The powerful crime of “Phyllis” took a break on Sunday, when against “Auckland Athletic” was as cold as the day before against the star of Phyllis Kyle Gibson. While Gibson did not allow Runner A to take second base in the seven-half sterling on Saturday, Phyllis was only able to make the runner with the base second in this frosty final of the series, winning A 4-1. While starter Daulton Jeffries has nothing to show for a major league summary, he did one thing right in his approach to the hit show in Philadelphia, which gave 13 runs in the previous two days – Jeffries came right on top of them.
Matis Tibul of 76ers is forced to approach the Toronto series holistically
Matisse Tibul will not be available for the Sixers playoff games in Canada during their first-round series with the Toronto Raptors. It is his choice. Tibul confirmed this after Sunday’s victory over Detroit with a score of 118-106. He said he was not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and therefore could not enter Canada. Tibul offered a lengthy explanation for his decision to receive only one dose of the vaccine. Raised in what he called a “holistic” family with “Chinese medicine and naturopaths,” he explained that after contracting COVID he chose alternative methods to protect him.
Hours after winning the NCAA title Bobby Brink of the University of Denver becomes a pilot
In a quest to get something positive out of this Flyers season disaster, general manager Chuck Fletcher took Saturday not the time to bring in an experienced champion. It would be Bobby Brink, 20-year-old product of Fletcher’s first draft as CEO of Flyers in 2019, and a skillful team leader for the University of Denver that just won the NCAA Championship. Like, Friday night. So Brink didn’t even have a full day of celebration with his college hockey buddies before a team that believes in his skills and marketing skills signed a three-year entry-level contract with him for a maximum of $ 925,000. The contract takes effect immediately and Brink should take action with the team as soon as it is ready.
Back in the Sun: Philadelphia Flower Show to Be “In Bloom”
For the second year in a row, an exhibition of flowers in Philadelphia is held in the open air. This year’s show, to be held June 10-19 at FDR Park in Philadelphia, will be a little different. The restrictions on COVID, which limited the number of people in the territory at any time, have disappeared, and this has led to a more practical flower exhibition in Philadelphia in 2022 called “In full bloom”. “Now, without any restrictions, we are all open and ready to work,” said Sam Lemhini, head of exhibitions and events at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. “Engagement is definitely one of the big changes this year. We couldn’t get people to sit down. We couldn’t get people to get involved and get their hands dirty. It all comes back. We have some really different versions of this this year. ”
