I love using @remind101 in my classroom. It makes life so much easier! I don't have to worry about notes making it home or parents checking their email. A text goes from my phone/computer to their phone. I mean c'mon who doesn't have their cell phone glued to their hand at all times?! Another huge perk is that the parents can't see my personal phone number. Can't wait to use it again this year! I recommend it to any teacher out there! #R101Love
