Here are the things people are saying about TeacherEase:
"TeacherEase has brought us into the 21st century. Teachers are more productive.
Parents are more involved. Students are working harder. Everybody wins."
- Larry Bequeath, Superintendent, Tonica School District, Tonica, IL
"TeacherEase has really given our teachers great support with regular classroom
duties...they depend on it now for lesson planning, gradebook recording and averaging
and report card preparation. We feel quite at "ease" with the program!
I would say that the support I received from the TeacherEase staff has been tremendous.
Every time I have needed technical support it was available immediately.
The program is really easy to navigate, the product is reliable and
the people behind the scenes are terrific!"
- Janet Howard, Principal, Houston, TX
"When students ask, 'What's my grade?' I just remind them to check it on TeacherEase. I also print and post anonymous weekly updates so students can check it for accuracy."
-6th grade teacher
"When parents ask, 'How can my child improve his grade?' I just show them an on-line progress report. Parents focus their help where each student needs it most -- study more for tests, complete all the homework, etc."
-8th grade teacher
"I don't have a phone in my room, so I can't realistically call parents. TeacherEase has made communcation so much easier for me. Whenever I have an issue, I just send the parent an email. Often they'll respond within a few minutes. We can go back and forth a couple of times during the day. It's so easy and it's during my downtime -- before school, while the students are doing seatwork, during lunch, etc."
-4th grade teacher
"I used to hate preparing progress reports. It took so much time. Now I just enter my comments, press a button, and my current grades are sent to the office."
-3rd grade teacher
"I like the flexibility of TeacherEase, I can use it nearly anywhere. I can use TeacherEase in my classroom. I can use it at home. All I need is access to the Internet. I love not being 'chained' to my classroom machine."
-2nd grade teacher
"For every 5 minutes I spend on TeacherEase, I save 10 minutes of work later."
-8th grade teacher
"TeacherEase is so easy, almost obvious. I never even looked at the manual."
-5th grade teacher
"It's a wonderful program that saves teachers time when grading and lets
administrators keep tabs on the children."
- Sr. Anne Brummel, Principal, St. Peters School, Aurora, IL
The teachers enjoy the ease-of-use with the online gradebook. When the teachers
were originally trained, we did not spend but 20 minutes with the entire group
before they were biting at the bit to get to work on the program by themselves.
Most every question the teachers have about functionality is answered by the
intuitiveness of the program. Thank you for your wonderful work!
- Duff Coburn, Assistant Head of School/Director of Technology, Triangle Day School, Durham, NC
"There was very little risk in selecting TeacherEase. We ran a pilot for free, and it created quite a buzz. The teachers really liked it -- more wanted to try it after the first quarter. The parents loved it -- the PTA even offered to pay for it."
-Elementary school principal
"I love running eligibility reports. It saves so much time for both myself and the teachers."
-Middle school principal
"Thank you for all your work regarding the progress report, assignments, etc. This is very important to us and we appreciate this communication immensely."
-8th grade parent (and school board member) to teacher
"We took a look at TeacherEase and think it is fabulous! Can our daughter make up her missing assignments?"
-3rd grade parent to teacher
"I am very pleased and impressed that you have taken the time to use this useful tool. I am in computer science, and find that the most productive use of computers seems to be these web based information tools. You obviously care about your students! Look forward to continued dialogue."
-6th grade parent to teacher
"TeacherEase is so slick! I'm glad they didn't have it when I was in school."
-5th grade parent to teacher
"What a great resource! Thanks for helping our child succeed."
-4th grade parent to teacher
"Adopting technology is usually so hard, but TeacherEase was easy. We just signed up and starting using it, we didn't have to make any other technology investments. The Common Goal Systems people were very helpful throughout."
-Middle school principal
