Never Trust the Computer!

I am a huge proponent of technology but when it comes to money I'm betting on brainpower! Today I spent time hand calculating our FTE which will drive our budget for this school year. In the spring we plan based on projections but in the fall it's all about the warm bodies and doing the math by hand is well worth my time. I identified a few discrepancies and got them added to our count! Now we wait while the allocation is recalculated...

My friends are always amazed when I do math. I guess they think I just read and write! Now they will know the head Chef does math, too!
