Mr. Ryan Fotta

I have had the pleasure of teaching at Joyner for over ten years now.  I enjoy guiding my students' creativity in my room and giving them the freedom to develop into the artist they want to be. I enjoy working with clay most of all since I concentrated in ceramics at East Carolina University.

My name is Denise Hale, and I am the librarian at Joyner.  I became a librarian because I love to read and learn new things.   (You may be able to guess that non-fiction is my favorite genre!)  My favorite part of being a librarian is getting to know all the students and helping as many students as I can find their “just right” book.  Getting students motivated to read MORE is my ultimate goal as the Joyner librarian!
