Meet Dr. Joy

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


I have spent most of my career as an elementary teacher. During the last three years I have had the opportunity to work directly with teachers through coaching and job-embedded professional learning. I have found my passion!  Also, I’ve dabbled in online teaching, higherUpFTE2a9_400x400 education, and consulting with school divisions on the topic of student engagement. My current position is focused on the implementation of personalized learning. It is an amazing job!

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 could really go on and on about my extensive educational background and experiences, but I would rather spend my time talking about what matters the most, bringing joy to our classrooms. We will get to know each other through our passions, stories, experiences, but most of all our learning.

Looking forward to learning with you,

Dr. Joy
