New Job Day #2 – Adjusting to Telecommuting

want me to staple that for you?

More good training today. Everyone returned for Day 2 which is a good sign.  How cool is this…I am now one of more than 300 full time faculty working at University of Phoenix.  I love being part of something bigger than myself and that’s how it feels at the moment.

My short discussion today will focus on the more pedestrian parts of telecommuting –

Dress code/grooming – Today I’m dressed to engage my body AND mind. I’m in workout clothes, no shoes…but I did brush my teeth! I bought an exercise ball to use as a chair.  Doing core exercises and learning how to make students feel welcome on their first day, feels like a win to me.

My co-worker, Blue the Mastiff-Shepard mix, is guarding my door against intruders and interlopers – Good Boy!

Not for nothing, but I’m in a good spot to work and keep an eye on the neighborhood.  Has not been too distracting. I’ve managed to get all my work done, now I can watch some more tutorials and search for some neat things to bring to class next Wednesday!
