Welcome to a new era in JBE education!

Congratulations! You’re part of the first group in the history of our school to learn solely via the internet. It will take some time to adapt, but we’re all on this journey together. With cooperation and teamwork, we can overcome any problems that arise as we strive to end your JBE career on a high note! It’s certainly my hope that we’ll meet as a class again this year, but no matter what, I’m here to help you in whatever way I can.
  • Microsoft Teams will be our primary means of communication. Access is made through your OneView account.Let me know if you have any problems. If you havn’t yet, please check your DCPS outlook account for a message from me.
  • I’ll be posting your science work on the General channel. You’ll need to check every day for a new assignment. Links to the textbook and Penda are also available there. It’ll be easy to figure out. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me by leaving a message on that channel or via email. I’ll do my best to respond quickly.
  • I’ll be available for immediate help (or live chat) during my office hours: Monday-Friday from 1:30-2:30. Just go to the Office Questions channel.
  • I’ve also set up a channel just for the members of our class to talk to each other. Since we’re apart for a while, I thought it might be nice to see what each of us is up to during this time. Please visit the Community Chat channel to share your thoughts, post a photo, or just say hello!
  • Please remember to respect others whenever you post to our Team. Rude, negative, or inapporpriate comments will not be tolerated. No matter where school is being held, you are still my student and I always expect your best effort and behavior.
Please know that I care about you and your well-being during this unusual time. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
