I just received a text message from a student asking about an assignment. I don't know if I should reply. I told my parents they can contact me at anytime, but I'm not sure if text messaging is appropriate. I want to help end the cycle of poverty, so I'm happy that this student is contacting me. Text messages are free for me, so I kind of prefer this, but I'm not sure if it is appropriate. I don't want to be unethical. Your thoughts? BTW, this student is a high achiever and her mother is very involved. Thanks in advance!
