Ms. Anna Davenport

My name is Anna Davenport and I am thrilled and so grateful to be a part of the JYJ family! I grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina and attended East Carolina University (Go Pirates!) where I received my degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, I always knew I wanted to return to the Raleigh area to teach with the hope to inspire, encourage and build lasting relationships with each of my students! I began my teaching career in 2016 in Wake County and have taught 2nd and 1st Grade for 5 wonderful years! I am so excited to have received my National Boards Certification this past year and look forward to taking on another amazing year in First Grade!

Outside of school, you can find me on a boat in Atlantic Beach, planning my next trip destination, reading a good book and spending time with my family, friends and furbaby, Walt! I am looking forward to working together to have a wonderful year at Joyner!

Ms. Lizzie Branch

Hi, I'm Miss Branch! I cannot wait to get to know you and your child this year! I grew up in Lumberton, NC & attended Meredith College as a Teaching Fellow where I received a BA in Psychology with a K-6 license.  After attending Meredith, I knew I wanted to stay in the Raleigh area & was fortunate enough to begin my teaching career at Joyner! When I'm not teaching, you can find me taking my dog Millie on walks around Five Points, soaking up sun on the beach at Oak Island, biking, reading, & spending time with my family and friends. I look forward to our partnership as we help your child succeed & grow this year!

Ms. Anita Davis

Hello! My name is Anita Davis, and I am a proud to be a member of the fabulous first grade team here at Joyner! Raleigh born and raised, I attended Millbrook High School (Go Wildcats!) and graduated from Fayetteville State University in Fayetteville, NC. Teaching has always been my passion! When I was a little girl, I would set up my classroom at home and teach my dolls & stuffed animals; I don't ever remember considering any other career. I come from a long line of educators in my family including my mother, aunts, and cousins so teaching is in my blood! I truly enjoy being a part of the Joyner Family, and value our loving and supportive school community.

Ms. Elisabeth Jonczyk

My name is Lisa Jonczyk. I have been an educator for over 20 years! I have taught children as young as 3 and as old as 12! I have been a Third Grade Teacher, a Literacy Specialist, and a Title 1 Teacher, but am the happiest in my role as First Grade Teacher here at Joyner Elementary! I LOVE teaching First Graders! They are enthusiastic, fun, and manage to say the cutest things that always bring a smile to my face. Whenever I see a student learn something new for the first time or persevere through a particularly challenging task, I get so excited! These are the moments that fuel my passion for teaching and bring me joy.
