Melissa Burns (South Carolina) -- I don't know about anybody else, but my Google Classroom Stream was about to drive me CrAzY. I was always getting messages from parents and students that they could not find certain things like links or instructions.

Did not know if this could help anyone else. I love listening to ya'll every week.

They aren’t going to the same spot. Her workaround: Go to down to description: enters link there. Doesn’t allow her to enter Google Classroom meet link.
