Miss Joy

Hi all!

My name is Miss Joy! :)

I have been teaching since 2016 and I feel beyond blessed to be here. Kindergarten is my jam, and I look forward to each year with these sweet, young, curious, and engaged Lobo learners! 

I am mommy to a sweet and silly fourth-grader and have been married to my wonderful husband for ten years! We currently live in Denton, but enjoy hanging out with our family that lives here in the great city of LE! 

As a family we enjoy swimming, watching movies, playing games, and reading. Personally, I enjoy watching HGTV and drinking coffee with LOTS of creamer. ;)

I am here to help shape the minds of these young learners. I am here to help them understand and realize that they are STRONG, DETERMINED, IMPORTANT, CAPABLE, and KIND individuals who are loved deeply by their teacher and by others around them. I am here to help them realize that they are the future, and that the future desperately needs them to be the best version of themselves that they can be. I am here to help them understand that what they do and say, and how they act towards themselves and others MATTERS.


Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments that you may have. Our teamwork is crucial!
