Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Joanna Futch
Hi all! My name is Joanna Futch, and I am thrilled to be starting my fifth year with Madison City Schools. I teach Special Education Pre-K, and I love it! I have been married to Richard for 38 years, and we have two amazing children; Aaron, our son, lives in North Carolina, and Brittany, our daughter, lives in Georgia with her husband. My undergraduate degree is in Accounting, but after our children were born, I became a "stay at home" mom. That was when my fascination with child development began, and my passion for preschoolers was born. I loved learning about how they were learning. Our son had a speech delay, and that was my first exposure to any kind of Special Education services.
We moved to Georgia in 1998 from Florida, and I went back to college and earned a certificate in Special Education from the University of Georgia (Go DAWGS!). I taught in the public and private sector. We moved to Madison in 2016 as empty nesters, and we are very happy here. I miss my kids like crazy, but teaching makes it a little easier.
