     My name is Wendy Joiner.  This is my 24th year to teach school.

     After graduating Auburn University in 1992, I taught both 3rd and 4th grade in Georgia.  After leaving Georgia, I moved to Louisiana where I taught 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades. My first year back in Alabama I taught kindergarten at Gillmore Elementary in Jackson. Since then, I have been at SWHS where I've taught 4th grade and technology.  I also served as the Instructional Coach for three years.  This year I am the K-12 Guidance Counselor.

    While living in Louisiana, I attended LSU where I received my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading.

    I have two sons. Chase is a Freshman at Auburn University, and Reed is a 10th grader at SWHS.
