If so, is it possible the instructor also receive the email?
I just posted an announcement, and didn't receive a notification email.
Howdy! Whether a student or the instructor receives an email when an announcement is created is dependent on how the student and instructor have their Notifications set up. Usually most institutions by default have notifications going to student emails/faculty emails- until the student or professor changes those setting (they are individual by user).

You may want to review this other discussion which highlights different ways to send a communication to all students in your class. How to "email" an announcement to all students
Hope that helps.
