The nonprofit sends volunteers out to record messages through video, audio and text, and with the help of volunteer online “detectives,” finds and shares those messages with loved ones. There are over half a million homeless people in the United States, and a variety of ways people who experience homelessness lose touch with loved ones. It might be something as...

Aaron Schaidle, BSN, RN is a new school nurse working in Indiana. He contacted me via Twitter to share his view of why we need a school nurse in every school. Aaron provides a compelling perspective on safe staffing, through his lens as a new school nurse. I appreciate Aaron adding his voice to this important discussion. The health and safety of our students and staff are at risk, why is this even a question in 2019? But, as we know it is...there is no shortage of school nurses willing to...

Elizabeth Huntley recalls the day when her family’s life was turned upside down. “One day my mom woke up and she packed up all of our clothes, all five of us…and she took me and my younger sister who had the same father… down to my paternal grandmother’s house…and she left us there. She took my middle sister to a town near Birmingham, Ala., and left her there. She took my only brother and an older sister back to Huntsville and left them at a sister’s house. Then she went back to that housing...

Good Morning Everyone, I have been researching to figure out what NH is doing in every community regarding providing prevention and intervention in our schools. I feel it is imperiative that every city in NH have an effective way to get the message out and educate the public about ACE's. While there is a program called A.CE.R.T. in Manchester and it is a start, we need to expand these services to reach a wider population sooner than later, in order to help invoke social change. I am hoping...M. Rena Women's Lace Camisole Tank Top

During my career in the public schools I had the rare opportunity to actually sit in the living room of a parent (s) and share my experience with their child in the school setting.

I know for the most part if would look very similar to staff development of any other kind; however, most staff are 16 years old-early 20s and have not necessarily had the extent of education/experiences that we find with the staff hired in the school settings where I work. I also want to be mindful that some of the junior...Metzler 305 393 Brown Authentic Women Vintage Eyeglasses Frame
