About Me

Joy of Teaching PictureWelcome!  My name is Joy Hall and I have been teaching since 2002.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in special education and a Master of Science degree in elementary reading and literacy.  I have recently taken numerous graduate classes on technology integration. I also hold general education teaching licenses for Grades 4-9 ELA and Math.

I have taught mostly fourth and fifth graders in a resource room setting, however, I did teach for a few months in a preschool special needs classroom, too.  I am currently teaching 5th and 8th grade ELA in a resource setting with just a little bit of pull-out.  It sure is a struggle to meet all of my students’ needs with just one structure!

In 2008, I published a book, “Coordinate Graphing Hidden Pictures,” through Carson-Dellosa publishing company.  You can read more about my experience here.

I love math, reading, and art.  I find technology to be helpful and fun.  I enjoy brainstorming with colleagues and creating my own materials to use with my students.  I have written (and been awarded) several grants, including cowriting a Student Achievement grant through the National Education Association with Carey Bonifas.

I am married and have two super spectacular little boys.  Isn’t my biggest little adorable without his two front teeth?  And what about my baby’s kissy little cheeks?  I just ADORE those two!  I enjoy creating things for them to do to further their love of learning.  We especially enjoy playing games!

I am always willing to experiment and try new things.  I never know when I’ll find something that can make a huge difference!

Have a great day and don’t forget to make learning fun!

Joy 🙂
