Passwords … It is so important to regularly update and change your password, and schools now require you to include uppercase, lowercase and symbols into a password that can be as long as 30 characters!

All the Applications … There are so many applications that you use as a teacher - the number of times I have not only forgotten the password but also the name of the application is almost embarrassing!
