Staying in touch with your online teacher is an essential part of working in your online courses. Your teacher will send you information, request conferences, share resources, and document messages with you in the online course system (Maestro). Just like in a face to face classroom, your teacher can guide you and support your learning through the Communication section in Maestro. All students are expected to use the Communication section in the online course system (Maestro) to send and receive messages with their teachers.
How to Send and Review Your Messages in Maestro

When you log into Maestro you will see new message notifications in the upper right hand corner.


To go to your message box you will click on the Inbox on the left hand side under My Messages.




You can click Users to select your teacher or other user.  

If you wish to include someone not a part of your course, click the External Tab and add their email address as shown here.



It is always a good idea to check your Sent Items box when you send a message to your teacher to be sure it was sent.
