Hello! I'm Teacher Joy! Over the past 15 years, I have taught English to students living in the United States, Mexico and in several other countries on the internet in classrooms and one-on-one. I grew up in the southern state of Georgia, but I’ve also lived and traveled in Holland, South Africa and Mexico. I earned my certification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from the International Teacher Training Organization in Guadalajara, Mexico, and my college
degree is in the field of Economics. I have enjoyed helping students both young and old become comfortable with the English language so they can succeed in school and business.
My husband and I currently live in St. Petersburg, Florida, and we just had our first baby boy in December. I enjoy going to the beach, boating, travel and dancing in my free time.
I started teaching with the Sprout program two years ago and enjoy working with online classrooms full of motivated, excellent students. The class size allows me to give a lot of one-on-one attention to students to help them perfect their grammar, spelling, vocabulary and pronunciation. Online education offers a special opportunity for students around the world to connect with native speakers in other countries and I feel privileged to share my love for teaching and for the
English language with students at Sprout.
