Remind101: Free, Safe Messaging for Teachers

Teachers sharing their phone numbers with parents is always a hot topic at the beginning of the school year and a worry for many teachers.  Not to mention, those middle school and high school students that are attached to their phone, but would never want their teacher to have their phone number. Remind101 is a free app that allows teachers to text their students or parents in a one way message for reminders on homework or events.  It is a great way to stay connected and get messages straight to parents.

August is here, which means the beginning of the school year is happening around the United States. Teachers are preparing many important messages for parents to start off the year. With each new class, there are more children who struggle with getting papers home to parents, and teachers just don't have the time to call every parent. Remind101 can save the day. It allows a teacher to communicate with parents in a one way message.  Phone numbers are not seen by anybody using it. If a parent cannot or does not want to receive text message notifications, they can receive them through e-mail.

A teacher invites a parent to sign up and join them, and the rest is easy. A message can be typed and sent to anyone that has signed up to receive the messages. Teachers have super busy schedules, and they need to find time to spend relaxing in the evenings. No problem! Remind101 allows messages to be scheduled and sent on a set date and at a specific time.

Whether there is a project due or a parent night coming, teachers can easily get the information out through Remind101. It is a safe way to communicate with a group of people, and I recommend it for any classroom. 

From Google Play:
Remind offers teachers a free, safe and easy-to-use way to instantly text students and parents. Teachers can send or schedule reminders, assignments, homework, assessments, or motivational messages directly to students' and parents' phones. Interactions are safe because phone numbers are always kept private and messages are one-way only. Teachers, students and parents can see messages from all classes in one place.

For students and parents, Remind provides an easier way to stay informed outside of the classroom. Students and parents can download the app and opt-in to receive messages faster with push notifications, so they never miss a beat! 

Use Remind to send free text messages to save time, engage students and involve parents with your class. Try it today! And if you love it, share it with your colleagues or write a review!
