We, the students of Mr. Esperanza's APUSH classes, believe that fostering active communication between student and teacher is a necessary part of ensuring that we will meet our goal of a 100% AP pass rate. With the strain of distance learning, we understand that it is difficult for teachers to adjust and that this time is stressful across the board.

However, as juniors, our education and grades now are more crucial than ever. Not only are we learning the fundamental skills needed to flourish in college, but we are also taking the (arguably) most difficult classes of our high school career. When we had in-person school, one could easily address concerns before or after class. But with distance learning, email is our only means of communicating with our teachers outside of instructional time. This, then, proves even more distressing, when teachers do not respond to our messages.

Through general consensus and discussion with many peers, it seems that many of our emails fall through the cracks. Whether it be about missing assignments, or technological problems, or errors on materials, our problems deserve a platform and audience with our teacher. Ignoring student emails creates a hostile tone that discourages questions, concerns, and intellectual curiosity. With our now digital education, issues with technology are bound to arise. Shifting the blame onto students unjustly punishes them for things outside of their control, which is not fair in anyway.

We send this to you, Mr. Esperanza, not as a personal attack, but as a way for you to improve and become an even better educator. After all, the best teachers are active learners themselves.
