The 2020-2021 school year will begin virtually this year.
This means your student's classes will be a combination
of synchronous (live instruction) and asynchronous (independent classwork)
work for your student to complete. Unlike the spring semester the programs
for virtual learning will be Canvas and Microsoft Teams. Your student
can easily access these from the Roanoke City Public Schools homepage
under the students tab. In your back to school meeting you and your student
will be introduced to these programs to ensure an easy start to this virtual semester.
As always if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email
or call (540) 853-1461 and I will do my absolute best to assist you.
I'm looking forward to a great year!

Welcome back to another exciting school year here at Noel C. Taylor Learning Academy!

My name is Jessica Brown and I teach Marketing, Business, and Finance for high school. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University and this is my eighth year teaching at Noel C. I'm so happy to be back for another year and am excited to share the world of Finance, Business, or Marketing with my students. In their respective classes your student will learn about the various aspects of business and will relate the content to their lives, leaving as more informed young people. In each class students will work towards passing an industry certification test. In Economics and Personal Finance that test is the W!SE, which tests knowledge about financial concepts learned in class. In Principles of Business and Marketing and Sports and Entertainment Marketing, students will be taking Workplace Readiness. As we work towards passing the Workplace Readiness Test your student will become more prepared to enter the working world with knowledge of how to succeed in the workplace.

My goals for your student this year include:

  1. Gaining an industry certification towards graduation
  2. Learning more about their respective courses to become more informed young adults
  3. Having a little fun along the way
