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.
