I’m originally from Chile.  I have 2 daughters, 3 rescue dogs, and a husband.  One daughter is a sophomore at UNC Charlotte and my other daughter will be getting married in February.  I began my journey at Joyner as a parent. I’ve been an Instructional Assistant at Joyner for 14 years.  I love to listen to music, read, and enjoy the sun.

I have enjoyed working with kindergarten children for the past 5 years. Some children are attending school for the very first time. They are loving and so eager to learn AND to share their knowledge with us. At this age, we as teachers are laying the foundation for their education. I like knowing that I make a difference in a child's life.
 
I love working at J.Y. Joyner and being a part of the JYJ extended family. There is great support between the students, parents, teachers and  administration.  We are Joyner strong!
 
Both my children attended Joyner from kindergarten through 5th grade. At that time I was involved in the  PTA as a parent, and I was a substitute teacher here. My positive experience at Joyner as a parent and unofficial staff member was the reason I asked to become a permanent staff member. I was not ready to leave HOME.

Hello! My name is Sahara Merritt and I am a First Grade Instructional Assistant. I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC. I actually went to Joyner, so it has been super fun coming back to this great school! I enjoy playing with my dog Mocha, painting, writing, and reading!
