    "Google Classroom works great for my English students. It's a great way to communicate with sith students, stay organized, and start discussions. I previously used email groups for our discussions, and since making the switch it seems like students are more on the same page now."

    "This is certainly a helpful app for anyone seeking a good source for word definitions and spellings. For the business professional, teacher, or student, this is a valuable source of information that will always be in need. Especially today with the severe downplay of the English language destroying the value of it's content, this is really going to become a necessity in a world of endless ignorance."

    "This is a really useful and easy to use app, but it does have it's limitations. Don't be deceived by the ads, you can't do everything that it shows unless you are a genius artist or designer. But it is still a must for teachers."

    "I teach high school students that are constantly attached to their phones. The Remind app helps me connect to them in a way I was unable to before. I'm able to remind them about homework assignments and even let the parents know when their kid has been slacking off in class. The Remind app is a God send! There has been a 50% increase in grades since I've incorporated it. I've told all the other teachers about the Remind app, and they are reporting improvements as well. All teachers should use the Remind app. It's the best innovation in teacher communication since sliced bread!"
