Don't Like All This "Communication"

Clip to ScrapBook #4

I'm done using Class Dojo, Remind, and other sites where parents can "text" me. It just takes way too much time out of my day AWAY from teaching. I know all these sites are all the rage and our P brags about teachers who use them, but for me, they were a nightmare. It just makes it too easy for the parent to contact me BEFORE finding out what happened from their own child.

As I am middle school, I got more questions about assignments and grades, but ask your kid why he or she didn't turn something in. I don't know-I have 120 students! Plus, I think sometimes things might come across the wrong way through a text. I steer parents to my website or email. I also quit emailing back quickly when they start abusing that. I find almost 99% of the contact I get could be solved by talking to their own kid.
