what is a drop box? where do I find it?
Angela, Canvas doesn't use the term "drop box," so it is not clear what you are asking. Some instructors who are accustomed to working in a previous learning platform use the term "drop box" as a generic catch-all word to describe the place where an assignment is submitted. Others are referring specifically to the program known as Dropbox, which is a third-party service. Indeed, this teacher may or may not be referring to the Files space of the course. Since "drop box" is not a term used in Canvas, it's hard to say what was meant here.
Students submit assignments by clicking on the name of the assignment and following the instructions on the assignment page. The process is summarized here: How do I submit an online assignment?
If you are a student, I recommend that you contact your instructor directly to ask her to clarify what she meant by the term "drop box." If you are an instructor, I hope you will take advantage of the Where can I find a list of Canvas terminology? document when writing instructions for students.
Also, I'm marking this question as "Assumed Answered." Nevertheless, it will remain open for continuing participation, so if you still have questions about how to navigate to your assignments, or other questions about Canvas terminology, please feel free to post a reply.
