Welcome Team NYU!

NYU Alexa Cafe - Class of 2017


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.

You might be wondering who I am and what my role is here at iD Tech Camps. Here are some fun facts!

  • 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!

As you know, you are required to have your CPR/First Aid Training for Adults/Pediatrics in order to be scheduled to work. If you have not signed up for a class, DO THAT NOW.

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:

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!

If you have completed your employment paperwork you should've received an invitation email for Regional Staff Training (unless you are exempt this year). Thank you to all who have already RSVP'd! If you have not yet sent in your RSVP do that now! I will be attending the Adelphi and Villanova RSTs this year and I can't wait to meet/see most of you! It's going to be fun!

Super Important Reminder #3: Staff Corner/Curriculum

Staff Corner is LIVE! If you've completed your employment paperwork then you should've received an email with login instructions. If you are still unsure as to where to go to login, let me know and I can help.

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.
