    Is there a way to be a co-teacher of a google classroom yet not get all the student email questions?

    Yes!  Go into your settings, scroll down to notifications and shut them off.  The settings is on your classroom page (where you see all of your classes) in the hamburger (3 lines).  Settings is near the bottom.  Loads of choices to turn on and off your notifications.

    You can also go to Settings and at the bottom, there is an area that says Classroom Notifications. You can turn off Classroom Notifications for specific classes.

    If you're going to turn off those settings for notification, you'll want to have set office hours so students know when you're responding to their emails.  For instance, many of my teachers say the following:
    Office Hours:  I will be checking email form 8-9 am and 3-4 pm Monday through Friday.  Please send me your questions when you have them and I will reply during these windows of time.

    This typically helps students understand email flow, and have some comfort level of when their questions will be answered instead of expecting real time communication.

    Good luck!

    Thank you for the office hours suggestion.  The application of turning off email notifications is for administrators that want to monitor their staff's Google Classrooms.
