I’m a Teacher, and I Truly Believe You Should Keep Your Kids Home This Fall

Winston-Salem, North Carolina, United States
Winston-Salem, North Carolina, United States

I’ve been an educator for 14 years, and in my time in the classroom, I have faced some incredible obstacles and challenges. The end of the last school year, with the COVID-19 pandemic, is one of the hardest and strangest things I’ve experienced in my time as an educator. It felt surreal to have no time to say goodbye to my eighth grade students and to go home on a Friday, expecting first to return in two weeks, then a month, and then not at all for the rest of the school year. Like most educators I know, I figured that we would be open by fall. My school district has chosen to start the year with distance learning, but from what I’ve heard from friends, family, and other educators, many school districts are giving families a choice. Even if you have the option to

The coronavirus pandemic forced many people in Connecticut to work from home. Power outages from Tropical Storm Isaias could send some back to the office.

The coronavirus pandemic forced legions of office workers in Connecticut to work at home to stop the spread, but the strategy hit a major disruption when Tropical Storm Isaias knocked out power — and in many cases, internet — to hundreds of thousands of utility customers in the state.

Major employers in the Hartford area said Wednesday they were coping with how the loss of power was affecting employees working remotely. In some cases, shifting responsibilities to employees who did have power. Some were even considering allowing some workers to come back to the office on a temporary basis.

Travelers Cos., a property-casualty insurer employs 7,000 in the Hartford area, said it is being as flexible as possible as employees deal with power loss, internet problems and storm damage.

“Colleagues from other parts of the company are able to support those who have been affected by Isaias so that we

The Coronavirus pandemic has left the economy struggling: a reality that is particularly threatening to students who face severe setbacks in the job market for the next few years.

However, students might have found a way around this, as they leverage the internet to earn money under a range of job roles. The ease of technology for students is second-nature, thus allowing them to fulfil a variety of positions remotely online. 

Repercussions of the pandemic have caused a higher demand for certain jobs- many of which students can fulfil. The need for extra child care at home has become supplementary to the economy, while time-off from formal education has given rise to tutoring outside of schools. 

Becky Marsden, a 20 year old student at the University of Stirling has been earning money online as a tutor for studentnannies.com. Based in Scotland, Becky has been

Need extra income? Try these 3 simple ways to earn money from home

With nearly 50 million Americans unemployed due to the coronavirus pandemic, many are looking for any way to earn money from home.

NBC senior business correspondent Stephanie Ruhle spoke with TODAY’s Hoda Kotb about the best ways to help your bank account without leaving the house.

1. Make sure there’s no unclaimed money in your name.

According to Ruhle, a shocking amount of money goes unclaimed in the United States: It’s estimated that the country has about $42 billion in unclaimed funds.

“I’m talking about security deposits, store credits, money the IRS might owe you, maybe even a savings account you forgot about,” Ruhle said. “This money, if it’s left dormant for a while, gets moved to a holding account in your state, but it’s up to you to go find it.”

To start looking for any unclaimed funds, go to your state’s unclaimed property website and type in your
