"So much of my time is spent sending announcements to parents about class activities, collecting field trip authorization slips, scheduling parent-teacher conferences, and requesting volunteers and contributions. I wish I could dispense with these administrative activities faster, so that I can spend more time on actual teaching and curriculum."
"Some parents want more communication and detail, others find that less is more. I would love to have a tool that allows parents to control the volume of communications they receive. It would save me the headache of trying to find a one-size fits all solution that doesn't make anyone perfectly happy."
"I live in constant fear that I may be forgetting something important. Last year I received hundreds of school-related email threads and countless other verbal and paper communications. Being able to easily manage this volume of reminders and to-dos would be a real godsend."

"I signed up as a room parent because our teacher had trouble getting other parents to volunteer as a room parent. It turned out to be more work than I bargained for, and I was doing it on top of all my other responsibilities: juggling two kids and a full-time job."
Cheryl, Room Parent
