Contacting Ms. Brownell
Parents and students, please feel free to contact me if you have a question, comment, or concern. Email is best and you will receive a timely reply from me. I encourage students to email me if they have questions about class work, homework, or other school-related issues. This is a great time for students to learn the skills of email communication and self-advocacy, if they haven’t already. Parents, if you feel that you would prefer to speak over the phone, please send me an email with some available times and I will give you a call. I understand that sometimes an email just won’t do.
I use a daily blog as the starting point for class that highlights the learning for the day, provides links for resources, and outlines the tools that students will be using (such as assignments in Google Classroom). This helps to foster student independence and responsibility by establishing routines and procedures that allow learning to happen from bell to bell. Here is the link to my class blog.
When students are absent, they can check the blog to see what they are missing and send me an email about what they need to do to make up the missed instruction and class work.
