Mrs. Joye Callaghan
My name is Mrs. Callaghan and I have taught Special Education for 23 years in Johnston County. I received my degree in regular education and a masters in special education from FSU. I became a teacher for many reason, but mostly because I enjoy helping students learn and watching them grow and realize that learning can be fun. I have a husband and two very spoiled dogs. My children are all grown and have taught me much about patience over the years. I love a challenge, and I met a personal challenge recently, as I was able to conquer my fear of heights while ziplining through a jungle in Belize. At first I hugged every tree in the treestands and I came in backwards a few times, but after a few short runs I learned that if I relaxed and worked smarter I could pivot my d-ring and land in each tree stand on my feet. The last run over a monkey farm was the longest and I actually wished I could zipline again!
There are no words to describe to you how difficult "distance learning” has been for me and I am sure many of you have the same feelings. I thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the most unique but the most incredible year. I believe that I have learned more from all of you than you ever could have learned from me. Thank you, every single one of you, for being my teachers this year. Have a wonderful summer and we will be here when you come back!
