I'm Nancy Reynolds from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.   I've spent the first half of my career working with IBM in Dallas/Houston.  15 years which instilled in me the value of responding with a sense of urgency and delivering a high quality product.  After coming to Baton Rouge, I got certified to teach and taught for about 6 years then became the school registrar/system admin, which I've been doing for 9 years.  I've used about 4 different SISs and realize that they pretty much all do the same thing. Some SISs just make it easier to do them.  We are on our 2nd full year with PowerSchool. 

 

I'm an avid learner, catch on fairly quick most of the time and love to spend my free time with my children, reading, re-purposing things and anything else that catches my attention.

hi @tmendo 

 

One of my first projects came into being when I moved into a house that had an office (room with no closet).  My youngest wanted her own bedroom so I got a $50 tv armoire and turned it into a mini-closet!  It was as simple as 1-2-3.....  sand, paint,  add-in the clothes rod. The most challenging part was finding the perfect hardware color!.beforebefore

Good Morning and Thanks for sharing! That was very creative! What a great idea. I love designing and decor. Please feel free to share new ideas. Happy repurposing!

Hi everyone. I'm DK and I'm the Director of Educational Technology at Korea International School. This is a new school and new job for me and I'm learning a lot about Powerschool on the fly. I've found PD+ and some other resources very useful, but I have run up on some things that are giving me fits at the moment and look forward to interacting with some resident experts to straighten out a few things here.

 

Great to be with you and I look forward to more interactions.

Hi there!

 

I am Heather Porter, Director of Human Resources at Southwest Christian School in Fort Worth, TX. When I began in March 2017, we used a different platform - we are new to PowerSchool and have access through our Region.

 

After 20 years in Corporate HR, I transitioned to this role, and love it!

 

I have two kiddos - ages 8 and 5 - who attend here as well.

Hello!  I'm very new at my job (late September/early October 2019) as a data/compliance specialist for our very small school district (less than 500 kids in all 3 schools combined).  I am responsible for maintaining consistant and accurate data in our PowerSchool system, and uploading records to the State.  I am looking for any helpful guidance in learning more about PS.  I was the high school accounts payable/administrative assistant for 5 years prior to my current position, so I am somewhat familiar with PS; however, I now have a lot more access and had no idea there was so much to learn.  Any help at all would be very much appreciated.
