As an AmeriCorps Alumnus (2004), I do my best to try to "get things done" for the Guam community. I encourage my fellow AmeriCorps alumni to continue to make a difference!

The present advisor is Dr. Lourdes Klitzkie. The SOE Alumni has a very strong sense of commitment to graduates by their fundraising efforts to sell plaques according to Dr. Klitzkie. She stated that the mission of the SOE Alumni is to “Promote and develop skillful, talented, scholarly educators and professionals and also to foster a spirit of loyalty among alumni of the School of Education.”
The University of Guam Association for Childhood Education International (UOG-ACEI) is a student organization in the School of Education. The UOG-ACEI association has purchased several plaques from SOE Alumni to honor and give recognition to members who will graduate May, 2011, and have demonstrated excellence in service by performing community outreach activities and educational projects.
On March 21, 2011, the UOG-ACEI officers presented a check to Dr. Klitzkie to purchase seven plaques to honor ACEI graduating seniors.

Presented by Christine Coombe, Dubai Men’s College, Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Justin Shewell, Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona
Coombe focused on the importance of good time management strategies, tracking the use of time, scheduling and planning, and time savers.
The following are the time savers she stressed:
*Layer Activities – Multitask (Read or talk on the phone while exercising); Streamline your errands.
*Let go. Don’t be perfect. Do things just enough.
*Stock up. (With a well stocked kitchen or desk, last minute runs to the store will be minimized.)
*Use computers for routine, repeating lists: address/phone, passwords, family info.
*Use checklists to keep from forgetting things.
*Exercise (Essential for superior academic performance; Many say NO ‘time’ for exercise; Your brain won’t function well if you are tired.
*Floating Tasks (Things that can be done anywhere, anytime; Carry around a book you need to read, work to review, or a letter that you need to write.
*Survival (Self-sacrifice and denial are necessary at certain times; Scrap everything that’s not absolutely essential for survival.)
Shewell focused on improving time management through technology. He focused on organizing our lives with technology, technology time wasters, and technology time management methods.
He stressed the following:
*Make sure the technology you use “works” for you.
*Choose technology that is practical, portable, upgradeable, and dependable.
*Learn about ALL the features your technology provides and use them.
*Don’t let technology distract you from your goals and priorities.
