Greetings! My name is Joyce Emery and I have the supreme pleasure of being a Significant Support Needs teacher at Coronado Hills. I began my teaching journey when our youngest daughter who has Down syndrome, started school. She was not able to tell me about her day so I decided to see it for myself and became a substitute teacher. I developed a passion for bringing learning to life for students with differing abilities, which prompted my career in education. I earned my Bachelor of Arts, Special Education, and Master of Arts in Teaching Linguistically Diverse and Learning and Teaching all through Regis University. My learning continues as I pursue my doctoral degree, yet the greatest learning is with and through my amazing students each and every day.
I am a wife, mother of four, lifelong learner, avid reader, animal lover, and passionate about family. When I am not at school, one will likely find me supporting our daughter in her Special Olympic or hip-hop dance endeavors, enjoying time with my amazing family, or reading and doing homework.
