SC teachers, advocacy groups voice concerns over Berkeley County schools reopening model | News

MONCKS CORNER — Teachers and advocacy groups from across the state descended on the Berkeley County School Board on Tuesday night to voice their frustrations at the district’s reopening model.

Under the district’s current plan, many teachers are required to juggle instruction to students both in person and those who are learning online at the same time. The model requires educators to teach one group of students face to face while also engaging a second group of online students, who usually sign on via video call.

A petition demanding school officials and board members allow teachers to choose one “learning pathway,” either in person or virtual, was started in late September. As of Tuesday, the petition had more than 1,820 signatures.

Teachers and groups from as far away as Columbia and Rock Hill traveled to Moncks Corner to speak to the board. Former Berkeley County teacher Melissa Soule helped organize

As a creator of Control Suite to propel the affiliate space, Stephanie Harris is a 16-year industry veteran and PartnerCentric’s owner/CEO.

The 2019 Women in the Workplace report by the Lean In organization and McKinsey & Company includes good and bad news. The good news is that over the last five years, the number of women in senior leadership positions in corporate America has grown. The bad news is that women are still underrepresented at every level.

Many of us have solved the glass ceiling problem by starting our own businesses. We’ve used the knowledge and experience gained in corporate America to build our own enterprises. But all too often, we encounter some of the same problems we did when working in a larger hierarchy.

‘It’s a Voice for Women’

Natti Natasha is kicking off a new stage in her career as an executive producer for YouTube Originals’ upcoming series Bravas.

The eight-episode series, produced by Cinema Giants and directed and executive produced by Jessy Terrero, tells the story of three friends and aspiring artists –Mila (Audri Nix), Roja (Nohemy) and Ashley (Amanda Antonella) — who form a musical group called La Milagrosa and are on a mission to find their place in the world.

“Through music, they want to talk about the issues that are happening in their lives,” Natti Natasha tells Billboard. “They are using their voices to vent as women. We’re going to see the things that girls and women go through in order to reach their goals, such as people not believing in you and the sacrifices.”

Veterans Voice: Wickford store selling clothing to benefit Operation Stand Down – News – providencejournal.com

When COVID-19 hit the Ocean State in March, a lot of small-business owners felt their world turn upside down. Julie Beebe, owner of Wickford’s Yes! Gallery gift shop, made the best of the situation and took the opportunity to pursue her dream, launching a locally themed clothing line while her store was temporarily shuttered.

By the time the state’s stay-in-place order was lifted, Beebe had created the RI Local Love clothing line inspired by the state’s wave license-plate graphic.

Beebe commissioned graphic designer Rob Dube to adapt the design and worked with Jake Farenholz of Fresh Mode Screen Printing to embroider and screen-print the logo on clothing.

Yes! Gallery was founded as JW Graham by Beebe’s stepfather-in-law, more than 40 years ago. The store has expanded, then contracted over the years, but people recognize Beebe as a locally owned business with deep roots in Wickford.
