Before Signing up to Present
Once you have found an opportunity you are interested in, you might have some questions for a teacher before you decide to sign up (e.g. asking for more details about the request or asking if ___ would be appropriate to include during the session.). If this is the case, you can send a message to the educator by clicking on the "Send Message" link in the Requester tile. This tile can be found on the right side of the teacher request page, typically next to the description.
After Presenting to a Class
Another reason to send a message is if after meeting with a classroom, you might want to follow up with the educator by sharing something you'd mentioned during the session.
1. Find the teacher by accessing the relevant session here or by logging in and clicking on the menu icon on the top left of the page, then selecting "Sessions" and clicking "My Sessions" in the navigation bar to the left.
2. Tap over to your sessions, then click on the "Completed" tab on the top of the page. Click on the relevant session tile which will take you back to the session request. Click on the "Send Message" link in the requester tile on the right side of the session page.
Note: For Industry Chats, if you upload a document or add a comment to the page, registered participants will automatically receive a message notifying them that you have posted something.
