Hello! My name is Joy and I feel so blessed to be a teacher. I love children and love seeing the difference I make in the children I teach. I am entering my thirteeth year of teaching in Cook County and I love every minute of it! I began my education at ABAC and graduated with an Associate's in Science. I left ABAC and joined VSU where I graduated with my Bachelor's in Education. I graduated with my master's in reading from Walden University in 2014.  I am currently pursuing my specialist degree in Early Childhood and will graduate in 2018.


I have been married for 19 years to my high school sweetheart. I have three boys.  Two of my sons share the same birthday but are a year apart.  My oldest son is eleven, my middle son is ten,  and my third son is five!!


We enjoy showing hogs! I enjoy going to church with my family! We love vacationing at the beach every summer with extended family!

I love working with children and I am looking forward to meeting and working with your children.
