• Welcome to Our 3rd Grade Crew!


    Welcome to 3rd grade at Joy Elementary. I am very excited about starting the new school year with you.  We are going to learn many skills to help you towards success. I can not wait to start off this experience with you!

  • Meet the Teacher

    Hi! My name is Miss Stayback. This will be my fourth year of teaching. I graduated from Purdue University Northwest with a degree in Elementary Education. I did my student teaching here at Joy Elementary in third grade, where I grew a love for the school and the students I worked with. After teaching in 5th grade for three years, I am beyond excited to start a new journey in the third grade where it all started!  My favorite hobbies are going to Target, drinking iced coffee, and being outside in the sunshine. I look forward to working with the parents and students of Joy elementary.
