PROVIDENCE,R.I. -- Angela N. Romans, the senior education advisor to Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, will join the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University.


PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Providence Schools announces that Chief Academic Officer Paula Shannon has tendered her resignation from the district in order to pursue other professional opportunities.

Romans seemed entirely useless and blandly malign. Opinions of Paula Shannon diverged wildly depending on whether you were an elementary or secondary person. My elementary friends seemed to like her, at least.

My experience with Ms. Shannon was not good, and I was an elementary teacher in Providence since 1999.

You may remember this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBSgchJe2Z0 from December.

I was just thinking about you last weekend Stephen as a matter of fact while hearing about ice harvesting on an oral history tour of Mashapaug Pond. ;-)

But yeah, I was surprised that some of my friends liked her.
