Mrs. Kristina Lyon
This is my 19th year teaching at JYJ! I love the Joyner community of students, teachers, and families! In my classroom, I enjoy seeing the joy my students have as they explore and learn new things. I am encouraged by the confidence my students show, as they make connections, defend their thinking, and share their ideas and knowledge. Traveling and experiencing other cultures is one of my favorite things to do. I lived in Africa (Malawi and Kenya) for 4 years as a teenager. My travels since have taken me to Zimbabwe, South Africa, London, Amsterdam, Ireland, Canada, Hawaii and Israel. My hope is that my excitement for learning inspires my students as much as they inspire me, and that the experiences I have had help to give them a window into the world around them.
