Ms. Shayla Joyner

Welcome to Second Grade! 

I am Ms. Joyner and I am excited to be teaching 2nd Grade for the second year at West Smithfield Elementary. I am from Clayton, NC and I went to North Carolina Central University for my undergrad degree in Public Health Education. Go Eagles!!! I have one daughter who is currently a 4th grader here at WSE and I enjoy trying new things. I teach because I want all students to know that it's not about how you start it's about how you finish, so always remember to persevere !
