Effective Mindset Integration among Student at ClassDojo

ClassDojo is a communication platform more or less like a virtue classroom where teachers help parents to share in the environment of their kids in schools through providing resources in form of videos, messages and photos. The platform is a software helping teachers to share progressive ideas in education like for instance personalized learning and SEL in classroom in an easier effective way that student love.
Established by Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don, the platform is like a community comprising teachers, students and parents connected by a shared belief of improving the art of learning together. The mission of the company is to offer to the communities of teacher, students and parents the power to change the perspective of education from the ground up to each and every classroom in the world.
ClassDojo source of income was originally from the teachers themselves. In the year 2011, the company’s was sponsored by ImagineK12, a program that funded startup education initiatives. One year later, ClassDojo was offered $1.7 million by a group of investors including Ron Conway, General catalyst, Paul graham, Lerer Ventures and Kapor main. The company has continually expanded in various countries with its headquarters situated at San Francisco California.
Recently, ClassDojo launched a new tool on its platform, the StoryThis is an offering dedicated to rationalize communication between parents and teachers. The tool will eliminate the usage of websites and newsletter that teachers are required to create, every time they want to update parents about what their kids have been doing in classrooms. The software feature has been designed to be an app running on Android and iPhone operating system platforms as well as on any web browser.
Available in beta version, Class Story Software aims to register more than 60,000 teachers and will be available to the entire public. The feature will privatize communications between teachers and parents. Teachers around the world will be able to post texts and photos to class feeds, which automatically will be shared to connected parents. This will allow the parent to stay involved with their child’s education, getting reliable and relevant information right on their phones (facilitating engagement).
ClassDojo believes that the safety of their students is in their heart and since traditional websites are not secure enough for educational interactions, then it’s the high-tech and quality tools like Class Story that will help solve the problem.

When Doe Deere walks into a room, you can’t miss her. She’s often wearing her hair in pink or purple tones, and is known by her fans as “Queen of Unicorns.” Deere is also known for wearing multiple patterns and always doing something eye-catching when it comes to her makeup. With her successful cosmetics line Lime Crime, Deere is showing the world how passionate she is about makeup and creativity in general.

Deere shares that her time as a musician taught her the value of marketing herself and structuring her career. She states that being creative for a living taught her to appreciate when people come out to events or show support.

After her time as a musician, Doe Deere got her start in makeup, and she says the transition has been a beautiful thing. She admits that she’s always had the mindset of an entrepreneur, and started a business in Russia selling temporary tattoos when she was just 13.

Deere was also one of the first people to have an online cosmetics store where lip colors were modeled on real lips instead of displayed as color swatches.

Handy Can Handle Your Chores

I like spending time with my family. I do not like spring cleaning. I like going out to restaurants and movies. Again, I repeat, that I do not like spring cleaning at all. For me, hiring Handy is the logical step in completing my spring cleaning household chores. I know that I hate to clean, but I know that there are other people that do this for a living that love their jobs. This gives me more time to do what I want to do, and I think that it is worth the price that is paid for these services.

Handy certainly makes it so easy to take more time with my family. I like to have a clean house, and I don’t have to trade off time with my family to do it. Handy has certainly become the site that people will use to book services when they want the job done well. I have no reservations about getting these workers to come out because they just make my life so much more enjoyable.

There are quite a few chores that are handled by the Handy app. There are workers in place that can handle all of the things that are being done inside of the home. In the spring there are a ton of things that I need Handy for. Dusting, one of my least favorite things, is done by Handy. Painting, another thing that ranks among my least favorite things, is another thing that Handy contractors do quite well. I have no need to waste my time trying to do those things that I am not good in. I would much rather pay someone that does the job well.

Handy is a diverse company. Handy is also into the business of doing work with air conditioners and electrical work. There are things that I use to get done by other people, but now Handy is doing the work for me and I could not be happier. If there is ever a problem with my plumbing I will also be able to call Handy about that as well.

Andy Wirth – CEO of Squaw Valley Resorts Seeks Relief

Andy Wirth is the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings and has endured some tough times in the past few years. Weather hasn’t been especially cooperative, producing a drought for the Olympic scenic area, which makes it hard for the ski sports to take effect if the weather doesn’t produce.

Not only has he been faced with less than normal weather conditions, he has also had to deal with the incorporation and their efforts. However, thankfully, he has had a bout of relief from the two that has caused him to be able to breathe just a little better.

The incorporation has created some acquisitions and divisive efforts with the valley, and Wirth believes that it is a “recipe for disaster.” The incorporation recently withdrew their efforts, however, there has definitely been some damage done. Wirth hopes that in the future they work through some of the issues and do what’s right for the community.

Weather has also started to finally cooperate. The famous scenic ski resort was able to open their doors slightly early due to a snow storm that swept through the valley, creating enough snow and moisture for outdoor enthusiasts to take advantage.

The resort is known for its beautiful scenic picturesque views as well as the winter activities that are enjoyed by many in the Lake Tahoe areas, as well as visitors from all over.

Wirth has worked very hard to make the resort the way it is, and is continuously improving the resort to suit the needs to the public and enthusiasts. His most recent project is centered around a gondola that will stretch from one ski resort to the other, making it easier for skier’s to navigate through the area and hop from one resort to the next. They will be able to enjoy both resorts and have a safe, effective gondola to travel through.

They will have the opportunity to part at one or the other, and then travel back and forth. This will become a huge asset to the Squaw Valley Resort as it will make a way to the neighbor ski resort which in turn will make some very happy outdoor enthusiasts.

Andy Wirth has always been quite familiar with the outdoors and the historical state park sceneries. He grew up in Germany, and moved to Colorado to attend the Colorado State University. After graduating from college, he moved to Steamboat, Colorado, where his career began.

After working for the resort there for a length of time, he moved to the Olympic Valley where he became the CEO of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort. He has been working to improve the grounds for quite some time, and is looking forward to the positive efforts.
