Teachers and administrator have stress all around them.
The beginning of school stress.
Parent-Teacher Conference stress.
Way too much free food in the lounge stress.
School Board stress.
Overwhelmed with constantly changing new technology stress.
Other employee stress.
Senseless meeting stress.
Teacher stress on administrators.
Administrator stress on teachers.
Kids with runny noses stress.
Lack of enough snow days stress (the official season of woo-hoo! is about to begin).
End of school stress.
And the list goes on and on.
But #1 on the list comes from an unexpected source.
Emails are great but they never stop. Ding. Ding. Ding. Ding.
My inbox makes more noise than junior high boys in the restroom (take my advice… do not go in there)
If you walk away from your computer for 10 minutes you can return to 20 emails.
During the course of writing this blog, I’ve received 12 emails… only 1 was almost important (and it’s Sunday).
Emails multiply like rabbits.
It’s easy to become overwhelmed.
The good news is I think our friends, the tech people, can help (let me… I mean them… help you).
While most people know the basics of email, most don’t go beyond that.
The easiest way to reduce the amount of time you spend on incoming emails is to filter them automatically as they arrive.
This is where you need tech help.
To not only set up your email folders, but to help relieve your stress.
Or some of your stress.
