Setting up Your iPad to your DOE email

I learned something new today and wanted to share. A colleague was reading her DOE email from her cell phone! I had no idea how this was possible (I'm not very techie...I know enough to get the job done and not much more). I asked her how she did it and she sent me the following pics, which I am now sharing with you =)

Most schools are beginning to request that memos be sent via email; morning announcements; ratings; and so much more. Just think - no more having to log in to see if you received an email to your DOE account. Now you'll be notified on your phone as soon as you get an email!

*This is in ADDITION to the email account that you already have set up! You do NOT have to choose one email account over another. You can access both (or more) from the same app =)

Hope this makes life a smidgen easier (at least!)

Taking on a New Role

I don't know about you, but I am EXHAUSTED! This year I'm taking on a new role and really looking forward to see what lies ahead for me. How many of you have heard of "Teacher Leaders?" (It's a new position within the DOE) 
I will be responsible to help support 15 schools, including elementary, middle, and high school. I have been going through intensive training for the past 3 weeks from 8am - 4pm and I'm beat!!

I'm not sure how my material will change (being that my primary focus has always been elementary school) but I know it will change to include a wider audience. 

Soooooo, if you notice that one day I'm blogging and sharing pic's about an elementary topic, and the following week I'm blogging about high school...this is the reason!

It's not because I decided to create a schizophrenzic blog =) 

I think I'm going to print out this image and hang it up in my office...
