1st Grade Instructional Asssistant

Hello my name is Jaquetta Dunn, and I am grateful to be apart of Joyner’s first grade team.  In Garner is where I was born and raised and attended Garner High School. I graduated from NC A&T State University as well as Strayer University.  As a child I dreamed of majoring in engineering doing computer programming.  This was my first and only dream until my senior year of high school and I changed it to education because working with children was more fun and interesting than sitting at a computer all day.  Since then, I have been working with children for over 10 years and love every minute of it. I love creating new materials that make learning fun and easy, I love watching their face light up when they get something, and I love seeing them achieve their goals. Teaching is and will always be my life.

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.

I'm Mary Kay Stephenson, and I'm a First Grade Instructional Assistant. I have been part of the Joyner family for almost 20 years! First as a parent of three kids who attended Joyner and now as an Instructional Assistant. I graduated from Meredith College and have lived in Raleigh since then. I have two kids who have graduated from college and one who is a junior in high school. We have a dog named Emmy and a cat named Boots. I love reading and spending time at the beach and laughing with friends. At Joyner I love working with First Graders and helping them learn and grow. Getting hugs from kids in all grades is also one of my favorite things.
