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.

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2009 and am a proud Mountaineer at Appalachian State University. I enjoy playing tennis, baking, and reading of course! I love to spend time with my family and the beach is my favorite place to visit.
