Ushering in the Next Generation of Science
Five years ago, Jodi Marchesso left the classroom to become the STEM Coach for the Pasadena Unified School District. Originally, her role was to help support Washington Middle School become a STEAM Magnet school.  When the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were adopted by California in 2013, Jodi's job was expanded to support all K-12 science teachers as they transition to the new standards. Jodi also fosters community partnerships. She has created and maintained strong relationships with Caltech, Pasadena City College, Kidspace Museum and the Carnegie Observatories. Jodi has two children of her own that attend the Pasadena Unified School District. Her daughter Arianna is a 7th grader at Blair Middle School and her son Liam is in 2nd grade at San Rafael Elementary School.

The Opportunity Zone

I remember my first few years as a member of Pasadena Rotary Club. There seemed to be this secret language used to describe charitable causes, awards, events, dignitaries, committees, etc. For instance, what is a Paul Harris Fellow? What is Interact or Rotaract? Why is it Done-in-a-Day? Who is Dan Stover anyway? What is a District - or a Zone? How does our Club fit in?

An Open Letter to Rotarians from the Rotary Club for La Crescenta and La Cañada Flintridge,
It was with great sadness that I learned that after 76 years of serving your community, your club held its final meeting last month.
