Welcome Team NYU!

Our little team at NYU is finally in place and I couldn't be more excited to work with this group of amazing women. Get ready to inspire the next generation of tech entrepreneurs and influencers. I wanted to send out my first official newsletter to get you pumped for the summer, and remind you of some super important things to do before camp starts.
Meet the team!

Get to know Jami
- I started working at iD Tech in the summer of 2001 when I was a Film major in college at the Savannah College of Art & Design. I was a camp instructor at Vassar College for two summers teaching Digital Video and Stop Motion Animation.
- I became a Camp Director at Emory in the summer of 2003 and have been working for iD full time since 2004. My job now is "Territory Manager" of the Northeast. I oversee all operations for camps in NY, CT, NJ, and MA. I manage a team of 5 people I only personally manage one camp location of my own...you guessed it...NYU's Alexa Cafe!
- I'm a huge music fan and can talk about it forever. If you really want to be cornered, ask me about Prince, David Bowie or the Smiths. I could go on forever. I also collect vinyl and can nerd out about that with you too.
Super Important Reminder #1: CPR/First Aid!
You can take an online course as long as there is an in-person skills assessment portion to it. It's a real time saver to do most of the class online and then just come in person for an hour to do a skills test. If you have trouble finding a class, please reach out to me.
We highly recommend the following courses:
American Red Cross “Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED” Course. We will accept American Red Cross's online course with an in-person skills test.
American Heart & Lung Association “Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED” Course.
You can also look at local offerings - just check with me to make sure they satisfy ALL the certifications you will need!
Super Important Reminder #2: Regional Staff Training!
Super Important Reminder #3: Staff Corner/Curriculum
Staff Corner is where our curriculum lives, where you can see fun videos, find safety info, and post to our world famous staff forums. You'll spend a lot of time here creating lesson plans, studying your curriculum lessons, and chatting with other staff in the forums.
Course Assignments: The courses you have been scheduled to teach will go live in just a few weeks. Until then, use the Scheduling Preferences piece on your job account to see what courses I anticipate you teaching. There may be up to 3 courses that I'd like you to study.
