Re: Please Introduce Yourself!

Hi All!

 

I am currently a Technology Learning and Innovation Coach for the Sheboygan Area School District (~10,000 students) in Sheboygan, WI.  Before joining this team, I was a Secondary Science teacher (AP Biology, Integrated Chemistry and Physics, etc.) in both Kansas and Missouri. 

 

Sheboygan Area School District has been using PowerSchool Learning for approximately 4 years.  We started using it when it was still Haiku Learning and absolutely love the product.  Our teachers cannot imagine life now without it.

Re: Please Introduce Yourself!

Hello everyone,

 

My name is Janet Russeau, and I am a Technology Applications Specialist for the Monroe County Intermediate School District in Monroe, Michigan.

 

I am the Cognos report writer for both eSchoolPLUS (eSP) and eFinancePLUS (eFP) for all of the schools in both Monroe and Lenawee counties in Southeastern Michigan. This consists of 22 public school districts and two Intermediate School Districts.

 

We have been on eSP and eFP for the past 10 years, and started out with Cognos 7.4. In September of 2016, we upgraded to Cognos 10. It has been quite a learning curve as the two versions are VERY different.

 

There are numerous other roles and software that I support in addition to eSP and eFP. I guess you could say I am a 'Jack of all trades'.

Re: Please Introduce Yourself!

Hi everyone. I currently work for the School District of North Fond du Lac as the IM-IT Coordinator. I run the libraries and manage all the District's educational technology.

 

I started using Haiku many moons ago, when they were first getting off the ground. I've used the LMS in the classroom for many years, eventually getting my entire high school to use it when we implemented Chromebooks into our building.

 

I brought Haiku with me to North Fond du Lac, where our adoption rates by teachers has increased dramatically over the last three years. The utility of the product and year to year saving of materials has staff quite happy.

 

Thanks much, it's been fun watching Haiku grow through the years and all the great updates that have come down the line.

Re: Please Introduce Yourself!

I currently serve as PowerSchool's Tier 1 SIS Support Manager, and my team is responsible for quickly resolving incoming SIS issues via chat, email, and phone. 

 

It's an exciting time to work for PowerSchool, and I feel lucky to work for a company that's at the forefront of helping to design the Classroom of the Future.

 

Prior to joining PowerSchool, I spent 9 years working as a high school English teacher in Tempe, Arizona, so I know first-hand the challenges that teachers and students alike face in the classroom.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't ever hesitate to reach out.

 

Best,
Matt
