Hill…Remembering 9-11

Tom Amsel. pg 2jpgBy Tom Anselm

As we walked onto the red, white and blue display on Art Hill in Forest Park, we heard a soft tinkling sound. It was as if tiny bells were chiming, randomly, constantly.

Is the New Technology in Schools The New Normal?

By Tom Anselm

Tom Amsel. pg 2jpgSo schools are back in full swing, which means I am also back into the wonderful world of substitute teaching.
