This week’s Teacher Tuesday profile is here! This week we are featuring Joy Broda, who is teaching 3rd grade this year. Here is Joy’s interview:
Tell us a bit about your family. Do you have kids? If so, what ages are they? Do you have pets?
I have 2 children and 5 stepchildren who are all adults. Between all of them, there are 8, going on 9, beautiful Grandchildren! I have two potbelly pigs and a 15 year old lab mix.
What are your hobbies? What do you love to do outside of work?
I love to spend time with my pets snuggling and playing. I also enjoy painting and anything crafty.
How long have you been teaching, and how many years at Crescent Heights?
This is my 26th year teaching! I have been at CHE since we opened in 1999. This should be our 18th year at CHE!
What is the funniest thing a student has ever done in your class?
This year….it was great! It was sharing time for our STAR STUDENT and she was telling the class about her cat that had a clawing problem, and how they had to give her away. The class broke out in song about kitties….(never heard it before, but it was sure funny!)
If you weren’t a teacher, what else would you love to do as your career?
Own a pig sanctuary and rescue unwanted and abused pet pigs.
Tell us one thing you’d love for the families of Crescent Heights to know about you.
I love teaching children. It is my passion. I helped my mom teach in her pre-school during school breaks from the time I was in 4th grade.
Thank you Joy!
