    Parents' E-Mails
    By MM

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Last year my school began publishing our room extensions and school e-mail addresses in our parent handbooks. I did get a small number of parents who would e-mail me on a regular basis, but I stressed that important messages be called into the office so I would be certain to get them (in case I don't have time to get to my computer). I have a feeling more will jump on board with e-mailing this year.

    My husband, however, teaches at the high school level in a different district. Because he has many more students he has found it VERY difficult to keep up with the amount of e-mails and voice mails he gets from parents each day. Many days he spends the majority of his lunch & prep time answering messages (written notes, voice mail AND e-mail). He's hoping to find a better way to manage all these messages (I suppose it's a good problem when parents want to keep in touch with the teacher!)
