This blog contains ideas and comments from my own journey as an educator in the 21st century. Opinions expressed here are my own and do not reflect opinions and policies of my employer. Your comments, ideas and suggestions are always welcome!
I find this policy disturbing. While my district in no way suggests that I give my cell phone number to my students or use Twitter to keep students and parents informed, it is strongly suggested that I do make myself available for questions or concerns. That means using district email (which drives me crazy because I can't search!) and my desk phone, I'm sure. However, if we're trying to be more efficient and transparent, doesn't it make sense to communicate with our clients (students and their families) where they are? Your thoughts?
