Ms. Shawna Joyce

Hello! My name is Shawna Joyce, I am excited to be teaching 6th and 7th grade social studies this year at Farnsworth!

I have been teaching for 15 years; I started my teaching career on the island of Maui in Hawaii. I have taught both elementary students and middle school. Most recenlty, I taught at Four Seasons Elementary School in St. Paul. I am looking forward to getting to know Farnsworth students!

In addition to teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am married and have 3 children; Maddy (8th grade), Mason (5th grade) and Jack (kindergarten). We also have a dog, a shih zhu named Lucky and a cuddly cat named Diggs. I enjoy running around the many lakes in Minnesota and reading books with my children - some of our favorites are Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and anything by Dr. Seuss. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out, I am happy to connect about student learning!
