    PTBoard's Marketing Coordinator Amanda Meer

    in Education

    From PTBoard.com:


    We developed ptboard with a single mission: making parents’ lives easier by keeping all their children’s activities in one place. We were tired of receiving and sorting through a hundred emails a day. We were tired of checking several websites to find one kid’s field trip date. Especially with multiple kids, it can be hard to know where and when all their school activities are going on. We want to make it simple for you. Ptboard is here to solve these problems for you.


    The founders of ptboard know first hand how busy parents can get. Their children have attended both public and private schools. Private schools deal with different needs than public schools. Because there is a lack of integrated communication, we created this website which can be used for all schools. This site can be used for PTA and PTO organizations.


    We developed ptboard in order for parents and teachers to communicate, collaborate, share, and organize anything related to their kids’ schools.


    This website can be accessed anywhere, because it can be easily used on smart phones and tablets. It is easy to use, from the large icons to the concise wording.

    Urban Teen Magazine's Celebrity Re-Air Interview with Deja Mae!

    in Entertainment

    Deja was practically born to be a performer. The daughter of Norman Howell, a well-established stunt man/coordinator/director and stunt double for Kevin Costner, Deja traveled from location to location growing up, so it’s no wonder that she thinks of a movie set as “home.” As a little girl, Deja fell in love with the idea of performing. It would be the film “Dances with Wolves” where Deja would get her first taste of performing.
