Staff Picture Day

Yes, these are the people in my (work) neighborhood. And yes they are as crazy as they look!

It was staff picture time and I wanted some funny pictures and pictures depicting various emotions to keep on file to use in different projects. Everyone really let loose and were great sports and we laughed.......ALOT! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I LOVE MY JOB!

Each person got an entire slide show of just them, some will probably post to their individual blog pages. (If they dare)

And here are mine:

yipes! I had someone take mine everyday I was shooting someone else........can you say never satisfied? Oh well, it is what it is.......

And my final staff picture -

New Media Team Focus Day

Today we had a meeting of our new media team (John Jones, Jaime Hendricks, Kevin Honeycutt, Chris Lock, Jerry Butler, Jake Fisher and myself) here at ESSDACK. We focused on Kevin Honeycutt and all that needs to be done to keep him up and running across the country doing his thing. His "thing" is presentations to schools and communities regarding Online Safety, Cyber-bullying and Bullying and Digital Learning. The guy is literally jetting back and forth across the US weekly, I don't know when he manages to sleep, much less put together new and exciting presentations all the time!

Today we pulled out specifically a couple of resources we want to get out and going,
1) a DVD titled - Raising Digital Kids

2) a book on bullying, titled Don't Stay Under the Couch, which features Starbuck the Cyber Safety Dog.

We also focused on building some apps for some of the presentations.....I don't know what that means, I don't have a smart phone - *glares at husband..... but my part is to produce the myriad of different graphics for the apps such as the splash image, header and app icon.
