We are very excited to welcome back, as a Fourth Grade Teacher, Mr. Charles Jones. Charles was a long time Joyner Teacher before he left us two years ago to be the IB Coordinator for East Millbrook Middle School. Charles is a Carolina graduate and a graduate of Columbia University Teachers College. He is a world traveler and has twin boys!
Welcome back Mr. Jones.
We are very excited to welcome Blair Hogan to our Joyner Family.
Blair Hogan has been a Wake County Teacher since 2003 and began her teaching career at Partnership Elementary. During her first year teaching, she taught a K-1 multi-age class. Blair taught first grade for four years and then decided to move back to Kindergarten, where she spent the past two years discovering her passion for teaching very young children. Blair is excited to join the JY Joyner family as a Pre-K teacher in the fall.
Blair received her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education at East Carolina University and has her Masters of Education degree in Early Childhood Intervention and Family Support from UNC-Chapel Hill. In addition, Blair is an Early Childhood Generalist National Board certified teacher.

The Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head, SC is one of our favorite vacation places! The lighthouse behind me is the Harbourtown Lighthouse. This picture was taken on the
18th green of the Harbourtown Golf Course after a round from the Pro Tees. Tiger and Phil are very safe for now.
Did you know that JYJ logged over 15,000 volunteer hours for the 2009-2010 school year? That's more than 80 hours per day! We want to thank all of our parents and volunteers for lending an extra hand to make our school such a great place to teach and learn.
