Want to know the great thing about this job? The sharing. I get to hear so many great ideas across the district! I’m in the process of working on a blog but thought I’d go ahead and share this time-sensitive tip. Many teachers wanted to create Google calendars with appointment slots for parents to sign up for fall conferences; however, sharing outside of the district can be a little tricky and parents would then have to have a Google account. One teacher thought of the idea of using SignUpGenius.com and setting it up for parents to book appointments for fall conferences. The website is free and is intended to get volunteers for certain times. http://www.signupgenius.com/ Even though this isn't the site’s purpose, it worked well for parent conferences! Much easier than shuffling through papers and sending back confirmed times!
