    LIBRARY OFFICE HOURS & Videos on Using Microsoft Teams with Chrome/Edge/Firefox Browsers

    Have a technology issue?  Need answers to questions about resources you may need or want?  Interested in a shared reading of poetry?

    Starting Monday, 4/20, sixth graders can get help from from the Library, 9:30am - 10am.  See the Library Homepage for more information.

    Which browser are you using on your home computer - Chrome? Edge? Firefox?  If you are having problems using Microsoft Teams, it could be because the steps to open documents, work on documents, and turn in documents differ with each browser.  The BRMS Library Home Page has 3 different videos - one for each of the browsers above - that will take you step by step from start to finish.  Make sure you watch the entire video!

This website has been created primarily to help you with time management.  It should be used in conjunction with your Agenda, but not without it.

I encourage my students and parents to keep an open dialogue, so please contact me with any questions/concerns via email or phone.   In addition, students are invited to call me at home (before 8:30pm).  I am also available to meet with students during 5A/5B.  Kindly see me to set up a meeting time.  I'm here to help you, so I hope you won't hesitate to do so.

For further information on my expectations, grading system, specific class routines/procedures, you can refer to the "General Expectations" Contract located in the English section of your binder.
