Pinchbeck’s Stein named ‘Super Teacher’
Pinchbeck Elementary School fourth-grade teacher Ryan Stein was mobbed by admiring students May 28 following a surprise announcement that Stein had been named a Virginia Lottery “super teacher.”
One of eight teachers statewide to win the award, Stein received a $2,000 check from the lottery and a $2,000 gift certificate for classroom supplies from The Supply Room Companies. Among those joining Stein in the celebration, held at a school pep rally, were (left to right) Steve Wright of The Supply Room Companies; Kimberly Mullins, Stein's fiancee; Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula I. Otto; Catherine McSorley, a PES parent who wrote the essay nominating Stein for the award; and Matthew Stein, Ryan's brother.
Stein was one of 20 Henrico teachers honored by the Citizen in its first annual "Henrico's Top Teachers" issue Feb. 17. Read the profile that appeared in that issue here: http://www.henricocitizen.com/index.php/news/article/ryan_stein_7438<.strong>

The Children’s Museum of Richmond last week opened its new Short Pump location at Short Pump Town Center, to the delight of children who attended a sneak preview of the location July 10. The new facility, located under the forthcoming LL Bean store (formerly the food court) is 8,500 square feet in size – much larger than CMoR’s former Short Pump location at West Broad Village, which opened in 2010. The new space includes The CarMax Foundation Service Station, the Silver Diner, a grocery store, a performance stage and an art studio, as well as a giant Light Bright Wall. > Read more.
Spinoff is predictably silly, devoid of plot
In Minions, those jibberjabbering little corncob things from Despicable Me have finally earned their own feature film. Specifically, three of them: Kevin (tall), Stuart (plays the ukulele) and Bob (loves his teddy bear), all voiced by co-director Pierre Coffin.
After tracing the evolution of Minionkind – we don’t know what they are, but we know they’re hardwired to serve the baddest villain around – our three Minion heroes set off upon a quest to save their species and find the newest, nastiest villain overlord. > Read more.
