Teachers deserve appreciation because they put up with all the mischief that happens at school. Bonneville High School's math department consists of ten teachers; this year, four of those ten teachers are new. Mrs. Joyner is a new math teacher located in the E-wing. She teaches Algebra II and her classes vary in size. Joyner transitioned from teaching at Rocky Mountain Middle School to teaching at Bonneville High School. Joyner made the move because she "needed a change" and was excited to move schools because she "enjoyed [her] students so much in the past that [she] was excited to teach them again.” She mainly changed schools to progress with her students and have them for another year. According to Joyner, "having the connection to the same students all year was huge.” Often using the words “my kids” to describe her students, she is grateful they are more mature than in 8th grade. Even though “it's a longer walk to the office,” she still loves seeing the familiar faces from previous years. One of Joyner's favorite things about being at Bonneville is watching her students grow up. Seeing her former students that have not been around for a while brings back memories. According to Joyner, one of the biggest differences between teaching at RMMS and BHS is the connection between teachers and students. Another difference between the two schools is the change in colleagues. Joyner said that a few of the "people here are still strangers," and after working at Rocky for a long time, her "colleagues [were] a part of [her] family." Although she is still putting names to faces, Joyner is thrilled to have air conditioning! Her old classroom at RMMS did not have air conditioning, so her BHS classroom is significantly more comfortable.
Bonneville High School is fortunate to have Mrs. Joyner in the math wing. At some point during the trimester, feel free to swing by her room and wish her a great school year!
