Today I had a parent come to school for an event and stopped in to talk to me. She asked a question that I couldn't answer without looking up the information, but we were in the middle of a fundraiser. I told her I would look up the information and let her know the answer. She then told me, "just give me your phone number and I will call you later." I told her that it was ok and I would send her the information. She kept saying, "just give me your number." I don't feel comfortable with this parent. I tried to get away from her because we were flooded with parents. Someone that was standing around suggested I text her so that she could have my number. I told her, "I will get you that information." I then smiled and walked away. I didn't promise to text her; she just assumed I would. Was I wrong? Do you give out your cell phone number? Two of my parents have my number because they had older daughters in my room two years ago. One of my mom's had it that year because we have older children in a group together. She shared my number with the others in class. Last year several parents had it because of the same mother. I had mothers texting me last year at five in the morning. I had parents that called my phone during school. I felt it was a problem, so I don't want to share it. Am I wrong for not passing out my cell phone number? I am available all through the day by email. I have sent home business cards with my email and my school phone and planning times. I don't feel that I have to do anymore.
