Helpful Hints Tag

As with many new things, the Teacher Center can be overwhelming.  Here are some hints that might help you as you get adjusted to the Teacher Center environment.

  Do not be afraid to ask questions or ask for help.  Teacher Center staff is available to help you with any questions you may have.  Other teachers in the Center are also a wealth of information and are always willing to help.

  Before you start a big project, ask for advice.  There might be an easier way to do things that you are not aware of.

  If there is something you need but you do not see or if you run out of a particular supply, ask for more.  The Teacher Center may have more of what you need.

  Make sure you have your school copy code before you try to make copies.  If your principal is unavailable to give it to you, you can try getting it from another teacher in your building.

  The Teacher Center can only accept cash or check for payment and it does not keep change on hand.  If you make color copies or posters and are not able to pay for them at the time, ask about starting a charge account.

  Some schools have accounts with the Teacher Center that allow you to charge your items to the school.  Talk with your principal to see if your school has a Teacher Center account.
