Education has been a hugely important part of my life for as long as I can remember. Even from the time I was a little girl—up through middle school and high school—education was all around me. I saw my mom working hard as she attended college, laboring tirelessly to get her Associate's Degree. I also have a great aunt and a great uncle who were teachers. And when I used to play as a child, I would play "school.” I honestly don't remember a time when education wasn’t a significant part of my life.

GoGuardian’s got a fresh fall look: inspired by you!
At GoGuardian, we always build and adapt our products with our users in mind. As a customer-obsessed company, we’re continually assessing our users’ greatest frustrations, and looking to alleviate them. That’s why, in the past year, when you shared your feedback: we listened. We did some deep thinking about the challenges you encounter every day in your districts and produced creative solutions to meet your exact needs — from individual student reports for teachers, to the ability to test your filtering configuration, to proxy filtering support.
Today we want to share a few of the product updates that we’re most proud of. These enhancements were selected based on your feedback and designed with your workflows in mind. You’ll also catch a sneak peek at new features coming this fall to make student safety and classroom management easier and more efficient than ever.

America is heading back-to-school, and students and teachers alike are preparing for an exciting, new year of learning ahead. While students are tackling their back-to-school supplies lists, teachers have their own preparation to do: locking in lessons, going over their curriculums and accessing the resources they need to best manage their classrooms.
Classroom management refers to the range of skills and techniques teachers use to keep students organized, focused, engaged, on task, and academically productive. Put simply, effective classroom-management strategies minimize student behaviors that impede learning and maximize behaviors that enhance it.
