Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Lourdes Oñate
Joyner has been my teaching home for more than 16 years. Previously I was a bilingual first grade teacher in California for 11 years. In California, I also founded and directed a Mexican Folk Dance group for 25 years. I have a Masters in Curriculum Instruction and Leadership.
My love for the Spanish language and culture has inspired me to share its rich traditions, music and dance with all my students, my peers, and the community.
My wish is for all students to have an appreciation for another language and culture, so they to can pass it to others.
When I am not teaching I enjoy traveling, reading and, most of all spending time with my grandchildren.
