Coming Events:       President’s Message—Donita Smith

     EOPO            Welcome 2011
April 7 & 8, 2011    Another decade has come and gone.
Spring Conference    Where did the time go?

                     As I contemplate the future for our organization I look back from where
    NAEOP            we came. We mailed letters, occasionally telephoned (long distance costs
                     extra), mimeographed materials (no copiers) and made the trip to confer-
 Annual Conference   ences happily because we were excited to meet each other face to face.

                     We have come so far and yet, we are losing ground fast. How do we reach
                     the younger generation and make them excited to be a part of this won-
 Annual Conference

                     derful organization? What changes do we need to make to get them inter-
   Costa Mesa, CA    ested?

                     With more school levies not passing, school districts are cutting student
                     activities and instructional jobs. They are also cutting back on travel and
                     the expenses paid for conferences. Because of the economy, not many
                     (if any) can afford to foot the bill themselves.

                     We are also competing with the working, on-the-go mothers that do not
                     have time for extra activities for themselves when their children are
                     involved in so much.

                     As my year in office winds down, I will strive to continue pushing this
                     organization into the twenty-first century. With the help of all members,
                     I know we can succeed.

career as an education office professional that can be applied to the National Association of Educa-
tional Office Professionals’ Professional Standards Program. NAEOP has specific requirements for
education, experience, in-service, and participation in order to obtain your certification. Make ob-
taining your PSP certification your goal for 2011.

You can begin your journey to earning your professional standards program certificate by visiting
NAEOP’s Professional Development Program web page at http://www.naeop.org/psp.htm. The PSP
is nationally endorsed by the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education, the Ameri-
can Association of School Administrators, the National Association of Elementary School Principals,
and the National Association of Secondary School Principals. NAEOP has a “PSP Questions &
Answers Sheet” link below the Certified Educational Office Employee. This document will provide
guidelines and there is a link to the PSP book for more detailed information.

The quickest way to get started is while you are on the NAEOP PSP web page is to click on Form I,
Page 1 and complete your information then print the form. You can use the Word document or
complete the PDF form. Next, click on Form 1, Page 2 and complete it. Form II - Administrator’s
Evaluation of Applicant can be started by you by entering your personal information on the top
section. Then the print it and ask your current supervisor to finish the evaluation of you, sign it and
mail it to the NAEOP Registrar listed on the form. The next step is to contact your high school for
your transcript or your post secondary education institute to send an official transcript to NAEOP.
Finally locate your completed certificates and membership information to help you complete
Forms IIIa and IIIb.

As PSP Chair, I am here to help you plus I need to review your application before I submit it to
NAEOP. There are three filing dates, September 15, January 15, and May 15. At this time, you can
meet the May 15 by submitting your completed application and copies of required documentation
to me prior to April 15th. If you have any questions, please email me at Michele.Newton@ESC-
CC.org. I will be happy to assist you. Happy 2011!

                    Organize and Prioritize
It’s not always easy to get organized and assure that you accomplish everything you
need to do in any given day. Sometimes it means re-working everything—starting
with the time you set your alarm in the morning—and coming up with a routine that
will best address all the things you are responsible for on a routine basis.

It’s best to break down the areas of life that need addressing into small, manageable
parts. This will allow you to work things out without feeling overwhelmed. If you be-
lieve you are too busy to even get organized, chances are you already have too many
things on your plate.

Try these suggestions:

   Don’t neglect your home life for work, and vice versa. If one is disorganized, it will
   affect the other.
   Sort incoming mail, paperwork, and emails immediately. Don’t let them pile up
   and become big projects.
   When you’re too busy to handle everything on your plate, delegate. Don’t feel
   that you must do everything yourself. You may be pleasantly surprised to find out
   you have some very capable “assistants.”
   Always put things back where they belong and tidy up at the end of the day. Time
   won’t be wasted searching for things you need if they’re where they belong.
   Consolidate your time. Return emails and phone calls during a pre-set time every
   day. Check emails only a few times a day instead of on and off constantly. Group
   errands and trips to the copier or storage room together so you don’t take several
   little trips.
   Write lists and prioritize them. Whether at the end
   of the day or the start of the day, take a few min-
   utes to jot down what you need to get done and
   stick to it.
   Whatever routine you come up with, always in-
   clude time for yourself. It will go a long way toward
   lowering your stress and gaining perspective.

                        Stay Sane When Multitasking
Like it or not, multitasking seems to be the wave of the future. Technology, along with
staffing cutbacks, is making it possible—and necessary—for all of us to do more than
one job at a time. Instead of fighting it, remember that flexibility and higher productiv-
ity usually increase your employability. When multitasking, remember this basic advice:

   Get clear objectives. Ask your administrator how your different tasks will be meas-
   ured. Find out what your deadlines are. Juggling too many projects indefinitely can
   lead to confusion and burnout.
   Focus on your core competency. Multitasking may require you to learn new skills.
   Challenge is good, but don’t lose track of what you already do best. Exercising your
   established skills will help you maintain self-confidence and minimize stress.
   Don’t overdo it. If you stretch yourself too thin with too many different tasks, you’ll
   wear yourself out physically and mentally. Be aware of your limits, and apply some
   balance to stay sane.

Greetings from the snow belt in northeastern Ohio. I’m Michele Newton, CEOE, CPA, em-
ployed by the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County. My husband, Al, and I are
empty nesters, since our son, Travis, has moved to Orlando, Florida to attend Valencia
Community College to pursue his Associate degree in Cisco Networking. Without Travis at
home, we’ve adjusted to the quiet once again and have decided to retire to Williamsburg,
Virginia. Thus, we are in the process of sorting through things we’ve acquired over the last
34 years and getting the house ready to put on the market and anticipate relocating by the
end of December 2012.

I first learned about the Educational Office Personnel of Ohio in the fall of 1983 and be-
came a member in February 1984. At the time, I was the Vocational Guidance Secretary at
Kenston High School and was working on my Associate Degree in Accounting Technology
from Kent State University. My last year during my passive membership with EOPO was
1994 when I was the Assistant Treasurer at the Orange City Schools. Since 1992, I have
been a licensed Ohio School Treasurer. I became a member of the Ohio Association of
School Business Officials and pursued learning more about school finance. While at Orange,
I also began studying for the Certified Public Accountant exam and earned my CPA designa-
tion in September 2003 when I was an Internal Auditor at Kent State University. In the fall
of 2003, I started working part-time on a Master of Science in Information Architecture and
Knowledge Management and graduated in May 2010. I’m proud to say, I am a life-time
learner and really enjoy the professional development opportunities available through the
Educational Office Professionals of Ohio and the National Association of Educational Office
Professionals (NAEOP).

 In June 2006, I became a member of the Educational Office Professionals of Ohio (EOPO) and
since then, have become more active in this wonderful organization. EOPO’s Past-President,
Cindy Goga, was very instrumental in getting me involved. One of her goals was for EOPO to
have a presence on the World Wide Internet and I helped her obtain the goal by designing the
original website in the spring of 2007 as the final project in my E-Publishing course. Then this
spring for my Master’s Project I developed and coded the current website. In between, I ap-
plied for the EOPO Martha Leach Member Scholarship and became a member of the NAEOP. I
became intrigued with the Professional Standards Program (PSP) and learned what was
needed to earn my PSP certification and the distinction of Certified Educational Office Em-
ployee (CEOE). I earned my PSP certification and CEOE distinction September 15, 2008. In July,
2009, I attended my first national conference and enjoyed networking with other educational
office professionals from all over the United States in Minnesota. I am looking forward to at-
tending the 2011 Conference in Charleston, South Carolina in July.

 During the past few years, I have attended the OSBA Capital Conference promoting EOPO in
the trade show. I’ve been a member of the Lila M. Van Sweringen Student Scholarship commit-
tee and the Ways & Means Committee. Last year, I was a member of the Legislative and By-
laws Committee and the PSP Chair. This year I am the PSP Chair, Webmaster of EOPO.org, Pro-
grams Committee, and a member of committee reviewing and updating the Job Descriptions
for the EOPO Board of Directors. By participating on committees and being the PSP chair, I
have earned additional points for participation for renewal of my PSP certification.

 In my free time, I enjoy reading novels and volunteering for the Geauga County Park District.
In 2003, Travis and I became volunteers and started as Trail Gators at Beartown Lakes Reserva-
tion located near our home. We have participated in the following programs: Monarch Tag-
ging, Halloween Wagon Rides, Winter Solstice, Engage the Ice Age, Sap’s-A-Risin’, and Ground-
hog Day. Travis and I also enjoyed being a part of the Park’s Fair Exhibit at the Geauga County
Fair over Labor Day weekend. I also have participated in the Bio-Centennial: 200 Years of Living
with Wild Neighbors and Wild Nights exhibits at The West Woods.

Over the years, Al and I have taken road trips from coast to coast. We enjoy hiking and visiting
our National Parks and my favorite is Glacier in Montana. It is amazing how blue the sky and
water are. Someday we plan to visit Alaska and may even venture to Hawaii to see Hawaii Vol-
canoes National Park. When Travis was young, we always planned our vacations around a sce-
nic railroad. We’ve ridden the Cass Scenic Railroad, the Cog Railroad to Mt. Washington, and
the Potomac to name a few. Al thoroughly enjoys driving on the suspension bridge over the
Royal Gorge in Colorado especially when he has the opportunity to stop, so we feel the bridge
swaying in the wind!

This fall my husband and son spent a weekend camping with the Boy Scouts
in Nelsonville, Ohio. On Saturday they were part of a group that was literally
working on the railroad. They dug out the old railroad ties and replaced
them with new ones. Their whole team worked hard all day long, and ac-
cording to the organizers of the event made extraordinary progress. When I
saw the NAEOP theme for this year, it made me think of their exciting adven-
ture. Isn’t that what railroads and other vehicles allow us to do—go on ad-
ventures? We travel, we learn, we see things we have never seen before, and we visit familiar
places we treasure.

Joining the NAEOP train will do the same thing for you as an educational office professional. You
will meet new people, learn new skills and information, have your eyes opened to new possibilities,
and find places that are familiar and safe. The mission of NAEOP is to provide professional growth
opportunities, leadership, and service for employees in education through a specifically-designed
certification program, quality training, a network for sharing information and ideas, recognition of
