Today we met our kiddos! I'm very excited about my class. As I was talking to the parents, I had comments like "We went to your website last night and saw your video! We were hoping you would be her teacher!"
Parents check out the websites of the teachers before they ever find out who they are going to have that year. How does your class website measure up?
Having an online presence doesn't mean posting the daily homework or some other high maintenance plan. Just saying hello and letting parents peak inside the world of first grade is good enough.
