Over the past eight years, Pasadena teachers have received a 3% pay raise, yet, in terms of salary rank, PUSD teachers are in the lowest 10% among unified school districts in Los Angeles County.Pasadena teachers are not asking for more than fair compensation. We deserve the raise we are requesting. Even if the District were to agree with the requested increase, Pasadena teachers would continue to be among the lowest paid teachers in Los Angeles County.Instead of agreeing to wages comparable with those received by teachers less than 10 miles from Pasadena, the District proposed a meager 3% salary schedule increase and a 1.3% one-time off schedule payment, leaving it’s teachers in the shallow end of the compensation pool.This is the same district that recently awarded administrators a 3% salary increase retroactive to July 2015. Where are their priorities? Where are yours?Sincerely, Opinion & Columnists Letter to the Editor: Washington Elementary STEM Magnet School Teachers – Angry Over PUSD’s Unfair Compensation for Teachers Published on Monday, April 18, 2016 | 9:49 pm 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Business Newslast_img read more

first_img Star Files Related Shows View Comments Whorl Inside a Loop Show Closed This production ended its run on Sept. 27, 2015 The complete cast is now set for the previously announced world premiere of Whorl Inside a Loop, starring Sherie Rene Scott.

Watts as Flex and Donald Webber Jr. as Bey. Off-Broadway performances will begin at Second Stage’s Tony Kiser Theatre on August 4.

Sharing intimate and sometimes hilarious details of their former lives (while portraying characters of varying age, gender and race), this unlikely group forms a bond—even as the actress’ life outside spins out of control. And when what happens in prison doesn’t stay there, no one is sure whom to trust.Baskin returns to Second Stage after appearing in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which he also starred in on Broadway. His additional credits include Piece of My Heart, Memphis and The Little Mermaid. Christopher’s stage credits include Motown on Broadway and Rent and Hurt Village off-Broadway. Myers recently appeared in Soho Rep’s An Octoroon, for which he received an OBIE award. Quinn’s off-Broadway credits include The Killer, King Lear, Hamlet and Antony and Cleopatra.

Cubs sign Kyle Hendricks to 4-year extension

first_imgKyle Hendricks and the Cubs have enjoyed a nice relationship since the right-hander went 7-2 in 13 starts as a rookie in 2014. Now that pairing will last through 2023 as Chicago signed the 29-year-old to a four-year extension Tuesday.“Early on it’s easy to put ceilings on guys, based mostly on velocity. … he’s far exceeded that ceiling,” Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein told reporters of Hendricks. “We love the process that he uses to get to where he is. He’s always working.” MLB hot stove: Mets ink Jacob deGrom to 5-year extension The new deal guarantees Hendricks $63 million from 2019-2023 with a fifth-year club option for 2024, according to ESPN.com. He will play this year on the $7.405 million deal he signed in January to avoid arbitration.Hendricks went 14-11 with a 3.44 ERA in 2018 and led the Cubs with a career-high 33 starts and 199 innings pitched. In 2016 he finished third in Cy Young voting and led a Cubs staff which won the World Series. His low-velocity pitching style has served him well in the bigs and, more importantly, Wrigley Field where he has a career 2.89 ERA compared to 3.41 on the road. Related News Yankees owner hints at more extensions for young stars “Hopefully, watching the way I pitch and get guys out will relate to a lot of younger pitchers,” Hendricks said Tuesday. “It’s not always about velocity but about the way you go about getting guys out at the major league level.”last_img read more
