Episode 80, Part 2: Montclair’s Community Response to Corona - Distance Learning, Daycare, Working from Home

We speak with three local professionals whose businesses are part of a support system for Montclair families. They help manage our households full of busy, active teens, toddlers, and their overworked parents. In America today, in 2020, an average of 57% of households have two working parents. That means this pandemic has severely complicated the lives of most of our residents here in Montclair.
 
In Part 2, we speak with Howard Weinrib who handles the Education Technology for Montclair School System and who also owns an educational company called TEKI that provides experiences that build self-confidence and leadership qualities in young people while integrating 21st-century technology into learning. And finally, we'll talk with Jay Shah who owns The Education Station Day Care Center in Bloomfield. We'll hear about the problems that arise for the families who have had to forego daycare while still working from home and we'll hear about the daunting position our local businesses are facing as they look forward to the end of the quarantine.
 
(In Part 1, we'll speak with Paula Ochs from the Family Service League. They provide support and strengthen families in need in Essex County through counseling, education, and social services.)

In this episode, we’ll continue to showcase some of the people and organizations that are helping our community get through this terrible time. stay home so we all need the patience to get through this.

We’ll talk to some of the people and organizations in our community that are helping those who need it most, victims of the pandemic. John Fromhold, Tim O’Brien and Valerie Allusson of Mountainside Hospital spoke with me about what we should know about their program to help us get through this, what we can do to help our health workers and how they’re doing at the hospital.

Then we’ll take a look at the efforts of the Office of Emergency Management here in town. This is a job that most of us never think of or may not know we have here in town. We don’t think of it until we need it. Chief John Herrmann leads this team and speaks with us about what they’re doing behind the scenes, working to protect our citizens.

We’ll also speak with Buddy Evans who heads up the YMCA’s here in town. He’ll tell us about services and programs they have to help health workers and our community.

And we’ll speak with the Mary Murdoch, owner of Murdoch’s Shoes, a long-standing business in Bloomfield that is pitching in to help the tireless workers at the hospital be a little more comfortable on the job.
