My name is Joey Willett. I love dogs and gardening. I love to volunteer to walk dogs that have been rescued and I love to plant new things in my yard. I especially love pretty flowers. I've been a kindergarten teacher here at VLE for 6 years and love it! I've taught 3rd and 4th grade for one year each, first grade for eight years, and kindergarten is the most fun!. I have a double major in early childhood education and elementary education. I graduated with those degrees from a small, all girls' school in South Carolina called Converse College. That's a long way from Vidalia, Louisiana! Kindergarten is definitely the busiest of all the grades I've taught. We have to get busy not only learning skills we need for first grade, but we have to learn all the new classroom procedures (the "how" we do stuff). I always look forward to a new year and meeting a new class. I know we will have a great year with lots of positive things happening!! Remember to add the app Classroom Dojo to your phone. I love to send pictures, videos, and messages through this app. You can even message me! Have a great day and we will also have a great year!
