Joy Conway - 4th Grade Teacher

Hello!  My name is Joy Conway and I'm a 4th grade teacher at Susie C. Altmayer Elementary School.  I've been teaching for many years - in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.  I earned my degree at UW-Madison and continue to learn through coursework as well as by collaborating with my colleagues. Throughout the years, I've taught in Madison, at all the elementary schools here in DePere, as well as Foxview for a few years.  I'm a nature lover who brings plants and a few critters into the classroom.  I love spending time in the woods, in my garden, on a canoe, or biking.   To me a child is like a puzzle; a teacher needs to look closely at the pieces to figure out how each child learns best.  My joy as a teacher comes from helping each child along their own personal journey while encouraging them to make connections with others.  I'm excited to get to know each new group of 4th graders and start our learning journey together!
