What’s your go-to productivity trick?
Calendar blocking! Scheduling all your tasks as if they’re meeting helps to allow yourself enough time to actually get stuff done.

The reality show, The Circle on Netflix. I think I’d be pretty good at it.

How do you prefer to start your day?
With as much sleep-in time as possible.

I really like baking, and right now my favourite is ginger molasses cookies.

How do you typically spend your leisure time?
Reading, video games, cooking for my family, and going on hikes.

andrea zians

Andrea Zians

Manager


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!!
