My name is Samuel Joyce and I'll be teaching 8th Grade SLD Resource Math. This is my sixth year in the Mesa Public Schools district and at Shepherd Junior High. In 2016, I was one of the AVID tutors at Shepherd and Stapley Junior High. I started as a Stallion and will continue to be one.

I am one of the members of the Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports team (PBIS) where we reinforce positive behaviors that will translate fluidly outside of school. I am also one of the coordinators of Where Everybody Belongs (WEB) to promote community within the student population by having our 8th grade leaders assist those 7th grade students who need that support socially, emotionally, or academically.

I was born in Seoul, South Korea, adopted since birth, and grew up in Marshfield, Massachusetts. I graduated from Arizona State University with a duel certificate in Special Education and Elementary Education. I'm currently attending ASU for my Master's in Learning Design and Technologies.
