Using Technology to Make Back to School Communication Easy!

When I first started using remind 101, I immediately loved the platform and the thoughtfulness behind it.  The concept was beautiful in it's simplicity: A safe way for teachers to text message students and stay in touch with parents.  Easy to use, easy to manage, safe communication.  100% free.   All of the bugs were worked out - no real phone numbers flying around, everything was safe and easy to use.

As the new school year begins and you meet parents for the first time, it's the perfect opportunity to discuss with them how they would like to receive communication from their student's class - and remind101 is a great way to make it happen.

Remind101 provides a safe way for teachers to text message students and stay in touch with parents. It is 100% free and is used by over 200,000 teachers, students and parents to send millions of messages every month.

I even set up a group for my blog:
