Actually, while ‘text’ may be used as a verb in the cellphone world, it has not reached dictionary status yet. Text, for all real purposes, is still just a noun.
So if you want to be grammatically correct, you would not say “I texted him” or “I texted him.” You would say “I sent him (or her) a text message.” Someday the noun ‘text’ may become a verb, but until then if you use it as such you are a grammaticaly pioneer.

If I am asking parents to respond to this: “My expectations for my child this year” would I use the word for or the word of? I think it’s for, but I wasn’t sure. Also, would it be the same for this question for a parent to respond to: “My expectations for my child’s teacher this year”. Thank you! Have a great day!
