Email through my epropes@tntech.edu address is by far the best way to reach me on a regular basis, and except in case of emergency, you will generally hear from me within 24 hours. I will not check iLearn email. Voicemail is the last thing I get to, and you may have to wait a bit before you hear back from me. If you leave a voicemail message that requires attention before our morning class, you probably won’t get a response in time. Email is the best way to address such issues. Meeting with Your Professor Henderson Hall is undergoing extensive renovations that at times make my office uninhabitable.
