Teachers (primarily elementary school) have been using Cluster for over a year to share photos with parents of their students, and let the parents see more of what's happening in the classroom. Homeroom is a product that focuses on that and optimizes certain things (the invite proces… See more

1) I'm a big believer in Brendan Mulligan.
