A few reasons I love this app:
1. Parents are not given my personal phone number. They are given a fake number to text in order to subscribe to receive my messages.
2. I can quickly send out reminders, updates, or schedule changes to my parents.
3. I can schedule messages. I scheduled a message for this weekend, my students had a project due today.
4. Set up is SUPER easy!
The only con for me is that parents can't text me back, I guess this could be a pro for some teachers. When I told my principal about this program he asked if I would share it at our next family meeting (faculty meeting). It is that good! I highly recommend trying it out...the best part it is FREE!
