Mrs. Joy Beaston
Hello! Welcome to my English class! My name is Joy Beaston and I teach English classes ranging from English I to English IV and also Creative Writing. I am a proud graduate of NCSU. This is my ninth year at Cleveland High School. Go Rams!
I am married to my wonderful husband, Cliff. I have three children--all married--and two precious grandbabies: Nolan and Presley. You'll probably hear me talk about them from time to time!
I love traveling, reading, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. I also REALLY love all things English! Yes, even grammar.
I look forward to working with you this semester! I have very high expectations, but we also manage to have a lot of fun.
My assignments and announcements will not be on this site but will instead be on Google Classroom. You will receive a code to join on the first day of class. Parents may also join.
