I graduated in 2007 from Pickford Public Schools and continued my education at Delta Community College and Central Michigan University.

    Remind App
    For the past couple years, I have been using the Remind app with students and parents. This app allows me to send a quick text message, email, or reminder to students and parents on their devices. I use this app to remind/inform students and parents of upcoming events, important reminders, and other quick communications. This is a free app that can be downloaded on devices (see directions on left hand tab) or used through email. I never have have to give out my cellphone number or receive cell phone numbers in order for this to work, but it does have a chat feature to send me quick questions. More directions about this app will come home with your students on the first day of school in our classroom syllabus.
