• My name is Julie Butler, and I am the CTE Director and Business Department Chair at Palmer High School.  This is my 38th year as a teacher, and year 34 at Palmer.  This year I am teaching Accounting 1, BIM 1, and BIM 2.  If you are reading this, chances are strong that you are in one of my classes, or if you are a parent/guardian, your child is in one of them. 


    I am sure that I don't have to tell you that this will be a very different kind of year!  We are all working through trial and error, but I will do my best to teach your student the knowledge and skills required for my classes.  Please keep in mind that things may be changing at the drop of a hat, but I will be using Google Classroom, as well as this website, to keep all of you updated for expectations and assignments.  We will also be utilizing curriculum through the website icevonline.com for each class.


    Here are some things to keep in mind:

    • If you are a student sitting in my classroom, work will be due on the date and time given in class.  See below if you are a virtual students.  
    • All students will need to have a set of headphones/ear buds, whether you are in the classroom or at home.
    • Because this year will not look like anything we have done before (even last spring), patience will be a must for all of us. 
    • Please email me if there are any problems with assignments, connectivity, etc.  I will get back with you as soon as possible, but keep in mind that, depending on the time of your email, I may not get back with you until the next morning.
    • Virtual Students
      • There will be some type of document that you will be required to submit to me each day so that I can account for your attendance.
      • I will be checking the time stamp on each submission, so please be sure to have it submitted or shared with me by 11:59 on the night it is due.
      • Please remember that I teach 7 classes per day, so I may not be able to reply to requests or emails immediately.  I will do my best to get back with you as soon as possible.


    The best way to contact me will be through email, which is jbutler@palmer-isd.org.  I am looking forward to the year and hope you are as well!
