I started making a digital seating chart this year also. When I didn't
have time to get around to it the last quarter, the kids were really upset.
I'm answering my e-mail from a computer conference in Chicago. They
have computers all over the place so geeks can check their e-mail.

I made extra copies of student photos so when I have to move them I just
paste over someone else. My Maview software from Viewpix lets me add
student names by each photo and print them out like a contact sheet.
