Expert Advice in Parent Communication

Effective communication has been a concern for school districts for many decades.  It is compounded by today’s communication tools such as texting, email, voicemail and Zoom.  Educators are asking how often to communicate, how can we be empathetic in our messages, and how do we ensure our messages are seen.  LinkedUp Podcast guests Miriam Altman-Reyes and Eric Daniels of Kinvolved help listeners find the communication balance needed for powerful education.

About our guests:

Miriam started her career in education as an NYC DOE high school educator. Her front-line experiences working with students and families in the classroom inspired her to co-found Kinvolved, a certified Benefit Corporation elevating equitable K-12 student and family engagement in school. As Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, Miriam’s responsibilities include overall strategic development and execution, fundraising, revenue generation, growth, impact, board management, and more.  Miriam is a Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation entrepreneur, a two-time Fellow at Columbia University, an Education Pioneers and Teach For America alumna, and has been named as an NYU Changemaker, a Top 100 Influencer in EdTech, and on Forbes’ list of 30 Under 30. She earned an MPA from the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at NYU, where she has also taught, an MA, Ed. from Lehman College, and a BA with Honors from Brown University, where she has been a Women's LaunchPad Mentor since 2014.

Eric -With nearly a decade of experience in ed-tech, Eric is responsible for developing new District Partnerships.  As a father of 2 children in the public school system, and having served as a member of the Nutley School District's pandemic task force, Eric knows how important attendance is. He also understands the trouble that comes as a result of chronic absenteeism, for the student, family, and school.  Before joining Kinvolved last year, Eric served as Director of Sales Operations for The RTM Business Group for nearly 7 years. While there, he built a tremendous network of solution providers and senior level District Leaders, helping them connect and develop meaningful partnerships. When not at work, Eric enjoys spending time with his family (Wife Jennie, 13 year old daughter, 10 year old son, and a Chocolate Lab),  He also enjoys most sports (watching & Playing), has a large sports card & Memorabilia collection, and hosts a channel on YouTube focused on Card Collecting (Called "Searching for Hits w/Eric")
