Having a Google Voice number is a great way for teaches to stay connected without feeling like they have to sacrifice their privacy & personal cell or home phone number.

Get a free Google Voice number to give to colleagues, students, and parents and you can have access to text message on your iPad, check voicemails with transcription from your browser, and most importantly, have a phone number to keep lines of communication open without having to give out your personal number.
