Mrs. Joy Hearrington
My name is Joy Hearrington and this is my first year at Liberty Middle School. I so look forward to getting to know you and this community even if we are starting out virtually! We will make the best of it!
This is my 13th year in education and my fourth year teaching Technology Education. We moved here from the Shenandoah Valley in January for my husband's job with the Department of Defense. We have a 10 year old daughter. We love to learn new things, travel, and read. I will be club sponsor/advisor for TSA and will assist with First Priority and FCA clubs as well.
This year I will be teaching STEM and Digital Publishing. (In Virginia, what Alabama calls STEM is called Technology Education and in both states, the course is a gateway to many engineering classes.) I will be the Technology Student Association (TSA) advisor this year and I encourage you to learn more about this opportunity because you will learn about careers which you may have no idea even exist and you just might like to pursue! As a famous GI once said, "Knowing is half the battle."
