Mrs. Watson

Hello! My name is Maria Watson and I am very happy to be your child's computer lab teacher this year. This is my third year at Joplin. It is such a privilege to be a part of the Joplin staff and a teacher to the amazing students of this school.

I earned my bachelor's degree in Systems Engineering from the University of Lima and my Master's Degree in Information Management from Syracuse University.  When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my husband Steve, my 10 year old daughter Ashley, and our dog Max.


I look forward to getting to know your child this year!
