Phone Numbers
Is it appropriate for parents to have our personal cell phone numbers? Is there a cut off time when talking to parents when we are off work?

Giving away your personal cell phone number is up to the discretion of the teacher. There are many other messaging apps available that can be implemented in the classroom, aside from using emails. ClassDojo is a common one, as well as Remind 101.

Depending on the grade level you teach, I would look into using class dojo the app. It lets you give out points for student behavior (good/bad) and the parents are able to go on the students profile and see how their child was throughout school, but it also lets you communicate back and forth through messaging.

I think it depends on the teacher. However there are other forms of communication that can be used interchangeably to phone numbers. Such as dojo.

I think that this is up to the teacher if they want their parents to have their personal phone number. If you give out your personal phone number parents may not respect the time of day that they call you or send you text messages.

Parents having teachers personal phone number is not the issue, this happens all the time, but the issue comes when the conservations extend more then professional and strictly about school and the student.
