Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kim Millsaps
Originally from northeastern Ohio, I journeyed to North Carolina to attend Wake Forest University where I learned to love all things southern, including my husband, to whom I have been married for 31 years! I received a B.A. in Education and took my first teaching job in Charlotte, where I earned an M. Ed from UNC-Charlotte. My husband and I moved to Raleigh in 1988 and it was here that our three children were born.
Over the years, I have taught third grade, fourth grade, middle school, and also worked part time at Meredith College supervising student teachers. After spending twelve delightful years as a JYJ parent, I joined the teaching staff in 2010. Both as parent and teacher, I learned that the “joy” in Joyner comes from the special relationships that grow and flourish between the members of the Joyner family. I feel incredibly fortunate to spend my days with curious JYJ third graders, sharing my love for learning, and especially reading. When not at school, I am most likely, hiking at Umstead, biking on the Raleigh Greenways, playing with our rabbit, Stella, or curled up with a good book!
