I am so excited and honored to be a part of the JY Joyner family. I became a teacher because I can't see myself doing anything else. I enjoy building relationships with students and watching them learn and grow socially, academically, and emotionally. I love teaching kindergarten and can’t wait to meet my new class! I grew up in Raleigh and went to Wake County Public Schools for elementary, middle, and high school. I graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, in 2007 with a degree in Elementary Education. Go Mountaineers! My husband and I stay busy with our two sons, daughter, dog and 3 chickens. In my free time I enjoy reading, gardening, eating delicious food, and being outside. I am very excited about the upcoming year! By the end of the year, your child will be a sensational scientist, an awesome author, a marvelous mathematician, a social studies superstar, a radical reader, and so much more. I am looking forward to working together to have a successful year.

I love being a part of the JYJ family and Kindergarten team.  I grew up in Warren, Pennsylvania, a small, beautiful town.  I moved to NC to attend college at East Carolina University. Yes!  I am a proud pirate!  I graduated from ECU, in 1999, with my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Development.  I then obtained by K-6 degree.  I taught for 12 years in Morehead City, NC before becoming a part of the Joyner family.  I have a son and daughter who both attend Joyner. Outside of work, my family is my life.  I love doing anything outdoors with my children, running, hiking, reading and spending time with our beloved dog Stella. I absolutely love working with children.  I love to fuel their curiousity, encourage their love of learning and watch them grow.  I can not imagine a more rewarding job. I am so excited to begin a new and outstanding year. .

Joyner is a great place to be; you can feel it when you walk through the doors!  We have great kids, and the families, teachers, and staff work together to make JYJ the best it can be.  I have been teaching at Joyner since 2008 & think it's the best school around!   

I am married, and my husband and I have 2 children: Walker and Ella, both who attended JYJ from Kindergarten through 5th grade.  I am from Virginia and grew up sailing in the summer and skiing in the winter. When I go to visit, I always try to work in a sailing or skiing trip, depending on the season. But when I’m in North Carolina, my favorite thing to do is go to the beach with my family.

My name is Megan Wing. I am so excited to start another year at Joyner and get to know your child! I grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina and attended N.C. State University (Go Pack!) where I received my degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, I always knew I wanted to stay in the Raleigh area to teach with the hope to inspire, encourage and build lasting relationships with each of my students! I began my teaching career in 2016 at Joyner and and have taught 1st grade for 4 wonderful years. I am so excited to begin my 5th year of teaching with you all! Outside of school, you can find me doing yoga, planning my next trip, cooking and spending time with my friends, family! I am looking forward to working together to have an AMAZING year!
