Nancy Preyor-Johnson
     Welcome, Dobie Junior High School Journalism I and Journalism II (Yearbook) students! 
    In my classes, we work hard and have a lot of fun learning about journalism. Journalism I students publish online news and features for the Dobie News site. Journalism II students write and edit Dobie News and produce the Dobie Cougar Tales Yearbook.
    See Journalism I or Journalism II for important class information.
    A little about me -- I have taught English, Speech, yearbook and journalism for seven years. I have also worked as a professional newspaper journalist. I earned my Bachelors degree in Communications from Texas A&M University Kingsville and my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership at the University of Texas at San Antonio. 
    Please see below for important updates and information.

    Daily attendance - During remote learning/@ Home learning, students should submit the daily attendance question in Google Classroom to ensure that they will be counted present.

    They can also be counted present for submitting their assignments (click turn in or submit) for the day on Google Classroom or getting on Zoom. 


    Late or Missing work -  Late assignments/submissions take time to grade and input. Students should send a private message in the assignment and submit/resubmit. Every submission and message is dated, so the grade will reflect the date that it was submitted. Please don't expect instant changes to late grades. 


    Contacting Mrs. PJ - Email or Remind (code list is in class resources on Google Classroom) is best if you need to hear back within 24 hours. 


    Questions about grades - Before you send a message about a question regarding a grade on a specific assignment, the students should go to classwork, view work, returned, and click on "View Assignment" and look for a private message. 


    Zoom tutorials/check-ins - Please see Google Classroom for Zoom schedule for check-ins and tutorials and links.

    Google Classroom - To join your Google Classroom class, you will need to accept the invite on Google Classroom. I will invite you as soon as the counselor adds you to my roster.
