Shahla T Merriman
Since 1988, I have worked in many environments where I recognized that the use of technology was the obvious path to increased efficiency. I worked hard to learn various pieces of software and eventually web based systems so that I could work smarter, rather than harder. This method of performing work made me seemingly indispensable in my positions held through the years.
Most recently (since 2012), I have been serving as a registrar of a school that serves over 1100 students in grades K-12 in a large school district. In this job, I successfully migrated “paper” processes to online processes. I have taught many teachers, secretaries and district personnel how to use Google tools to streamline internal processes. Utilizing these tools, district and building staff are experiencing increased efficiency and more effective collaboration through this common platform.
I am privileged to be part of a statewide organization that supports alternative learning organizations. This year, in 2020, at the annual conference, I was awarded the “Friend of WALA” award as recognition of my dedication to my work, loyalty to clients and unfailing positive attitude in all situations.
I am Google Certified and qualified to evaluate work flow situations, then create a custom plan to increase communication, efficiency and collaboration.
