Andrea Zians


What’s your go-to productivity trick?
I love post-it notes. I always write my tasks and to-do lists on sticky notes and post them on the edges of my computer monitor. I love removing them when I complete my task.

What was one of your first jobs?
I was a peer tutor in college. It was the start of my career in education. Being a peer tutor in college taught me that teaching someone is the best way to learn and it helped me prepare for tests.

What energizes you at work?
I always enjoy meeting our students. Students are the reason we are here and do the work we do. Meeting and talking with students is a very rewarding part of my job.

How do you prefer to start your day?
That’s easy. With gratitude and a big cup of coffee!!
