" A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instill a love of learning" —Brad Henry

A seasoned international teacher with 10+ years of experience designing and developing teaching strategies and launching global initiatives and programs to implement change across cultures. Passionate about improving literacy and teaching methods. I practice daily the importance of quality learning and keep abreast of new reading research and best practices. I use innovative technology as an instructional tool for differentiated instruction to assist diverse language learners in learning how to read and write in English.

Not only has she helped them read, she has really boosted their self-confidence. It has gone from a struggle to something they find truly interesting. I feel so much better about our children's education knowing we have Miss Joy on our team!”

I have never seen a child who has been reluctant to go off to a remedial session; rather, there is an anticipation of an exciting learning adventure about to happen.”
