It must be the start of the year because there are a ton of advisers out there who are looking for help. Yesterday we had a request for an adviser teaching multiple periods of yearbooks and today’s is about senior quotes. Here’s what came in:
“Every year I get begged by our seniors to include senior quotes. I’ve yet to hear of a system in place that works for quote submissions and that wouldn’t involve me as the adviser having to read every single one for content/appropriateness. I’d like to include quotes eventually, but I just don’t know if there’s a way to do so that wouldn’t be a headache. Any advice? Maybe this could be for a ‘tip of the day.’”
So what do you think? I have my own opinions and I have told her those but I would really rather appeal to the experts. Psst—that’s you.

I love these tips I got from one adviser who really has it all figured out. I hope they resonate with you as much as they did with me. These are especially true for NEW advisers.
“Be a team and be honest with your students that you are learning with them. If you have students returning from previous years try to meet with them before school begins to make a connection and discover the strengths and weaknesses of the program through their eyes. Log on and create a couple of pages...there’s no better way to learn the program than use it!”
