Sra. Joyce White

¡Buenos días! My name is Joyce White. Spanish students call me Sra. (sane-your-ah) White. I was born and raised in Meridian.

At Meridian High, I took four years of Spanish! Then I went on to George Fox University where I earned degrees in Cognitive Science (studying how we think), Psychology and Spanish as well as a master’s degree in teaching. I have traveled in Bolivia, Peru, China, Ecuador, Spain, Morocco and Bosnia & Herzegovina. Ecuador and Spain are countries I lived and studied in. Some of my time teaching has been in Oregon and North Carolina where I taught K-12 Spanish, ESL, various levels of high school math, Family & Consumer Science and English 9. This will be my 15th year teaching, and my 20th year in education.

Every single one of us is both a student and a teacher. SMS is a great place to learn. I look forward to helping students learn and teach this year!  Please email or call any time – I feel my job is best done when we all communicate well, and I appreciate your feedback: questions, comments, ideas.
