Monthly Tech Tidbits

You don't know what you don't know...

Welcome and Thanks for Clicking!

The purpose of this monthly newsletter is to provide you with quick information, tips, and technology hacks for the classroom.

A Few Reminders...

My Schedule - NEW Changes!!

Brown's Chapel - Monday, Wednesday, Friday afternoons.


Thurman Francis - Tuesday, Thursday, Friday mornings.

Work Orders

If you are having technical issues with your computer, software, printers, projectors, etc... please send your email to the work order email address for your school. There's no need to copy me or the technician (Josh or Teena) on the email. Please do not be offended if I reply back to you asking you to send it to the work order address - it just helps us streamline & prioritize everything ;-)
