About Me

Brooklyn born, I am the next to the youngest of 7 kids. This is commonly referred to as the knee baby. Warning, I am an Aquarius so you never know where this blog may go. I am happily married with two delightful, intelligent and energetic children.  My husband isn’t too shabby either. heart Family means everything to me. My family is my inspiration and they fill me with pure joy.




I have been an educator for almost 2 decades. During this time I have served as an elementary teacher, instructional specialist, professional learning leader, adjunct professor and educational consultant. Currently, I serve as an administrator for an amazing elementary school. Go #lynnhavenlions!

I’ve earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, a Master of Arts in Teaching degree, and a Doctorate in K-12 Educational Administration and Supervision.  I believe in the power of joy to transform all aspects of school. We will get to know each other through our passions, stories, experiences, and most of all our learning.

Looking forward to learning with you,

Dr. Joy
