NEW BRITAIN - New Britain High School is getting a new principal for the 2018-19 school year.

In a unanimous vote Wednesday night, the Board of Education appointed Damon Pearce. He was recommended by School Superintendent Nancy Sarra, who spoke of the new principal’s experience and passion for education.

“I’ve had several conversations now with Mr. Pearce. … He comes with passion and he comes with the belief that all students can and all staff can,” Sarra said.

Board Vice President Nick Mercier said a former colleague of his also worked with Pearce and spoke very highly of him when he learned Pearce was interviewing for the job.

“I was very glad to hear that he had such high praise for Mr. Pearce, so I’m really excited to see what you bring forward,” Mercier told Pearce.

Board President Nicole Rodriguez said about 65 people took part in the interview process.

“I am pleased to say it has been a long but fruitful process for the interviewing and I’m glad it was community-based as well as New Britain High-focused,” Rodriguez said.

The hire is actually a return to the district for Pearce. Pearce was an associate principal from 2005 to 2014 before accepting a job as principal of Suffield Middle School. Now, he’s returning to the district with more administrative experience.

“This building has enormous capacity, has enormous potential, and we’re going to do this, together,” Pearce said after the appointment.

NBHS has been without an “official” principal since the end of January. In May, The Herald reported several allegations against former NBHS principal Joseph Pinchera made by teachers in the school.

The teachers, who spoke to The Herald on condition of anonymity, discussed an atmosphere of bias and harassment in NBHS, perpetuated at least in part by Pinchera. Following an official complaint from one teacher in November, administrators opened a Title IX investigation into Pinchera’s conduct. While the investigation was underway, another teacher filed a grievance against Pinchera and the principal took a leave of absence on Jan. 31.

Pinchera officially resigned from the school district a week after The Herald’s story. Kerri-Lynn Major served as NBHS’s acting principal following Pinchera’s leave and resignation. At Wednesday’s board meeting, Mercier and other administrators and staff thanked Major for her leadership.

An estimated 85 percentof all American adults will experience some form of back pain during their lifetime.

Lower back pain is also one of the leading causes of job disability in the world.

With Americans spending a staggering $50 billion to treat—and prevent—lower back pain each year, it is safe to say that people are desperate for relief from this chronic discomfort.

Many people with low back pain fear Angara Enhanced Black and White Diamond Halo Pendant with Milgrain 7Bda8ymyo
that their pain is related to structural problems and spinal fragility, which is normally not the case.

Lower back pain can be attributed to a number of factors, including physical activity, injury, poor posture, obesity, stress and even the simplest of movements like picking something up incorrectly.

Fortunately, a growing number of scientific studies suggest that massage therapy can help significantly reduce inflammation and provide much needed relief from chronic back pain.

In fact, a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine on massage for back pain showed both Swedish massage and deep tissue massage methods were equally as effective atimproving disabilities from lower back pain and painful symptoms.

Relaxation and structural massage tactics both provide healing benefits.

While most people wouldn’t have issue with the idea of a regular massage, if you are one of the many who suffers from lower back pain, the following are ways that regular massage for back pain can help you find serious relief:

1. Increased blood flow. Increased blood flow is a known proponent of muscle recovery and studies confirm that massage therapy helps improve general blood flow and reduces soreness.

Research also shows that massage therapy improves the vascular function in people who have and have not exercised, which suggests that the vascular benefits of massage may span beyond the recipient’s level of physical activity.

2. Decreased tension. While muscle tension is needed by the body to maintain body posture and general movements, too much tension causes pain and muscle restriction, especially in the lower back and neck. Massage therapy is Ileana Makri Ileana Makri Woman Mini Snake 18karat White Gold Diamond And Tsavorite Ring White Gold Size 55 Bwuha
to decrease muscle tension.
