    JHB Profile Video for Spring Open House


    My name is Jill Brown. This is my 32 year to teach US. I taught in Crowley for 19 years and have been here 13. I have also been an adjunct professor for both Tarrant County and Hill Colleges.

    I married into Texas. My family is committed to history and travel and that makes me a good story teller. My children are JHS graduates and I love this community.  I also love boating on Lake Granbury, peanut M&Ms and Pepsi.

    Please email me if you have any need to make personal contact brownjh@joshuaisd.org.


    Class Supply List:

    There is a chromebook for you in the room and it is cleaned each period, but if you are carrying your own laptop you know no one else has held it.

    Three ringed notebook with paper

    Pens or Pencil everyday


    Your own earbuds...if you are using a JISD chromebook, the jack is round.

    The textbook is available for FREE.  It is on-line through Open Stax for APUSH and Hill or Pearson for regular.  There are both web page access and pdf down load capabilites. 

    To access my google class online: Go to JISD web page and sign in with Class Link. Then go to your google classroom icon.  I will enter all student in the correct classes in a timely fashion. 



    Class Rules and Procedures:

    Be respectful and responsible. 

    We will follow the rules of the JISD student handbook.

    For equity to at home and face to face learners most work will be done on the computers this year. When your interaction is school related I expect school appropriate behaviors. Google meets, emails and remind communications should reflect that. 

    For safety, there will be more procedures in place this year so lets all be flexible.

    All classes will meet at their designated times and attendance will be taken.


    College Level both Dual and APUSH The summer reading assignment was CANCELLED FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020.  (But what if you already did it?  I will accept your interview and chapter notes as a grade that can be used to replace a test sometime this fall).
