Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Joyce Williams
I received my bachelor’s degree from Loras College, Dubuque, Iowa, in psychology and business. I chose for personal reasons to return to school and received my master’s in teaching with a Learning Behavior Specialist I endorsement from National-Louis University, Chicago. I lived in Florida for a few years and received my autism endorsement at St. Petersburg College, in St. Petersburg, Florida.
I have been teaching special education since 2008 and I have had wonderful experiences. I taught Instructional Skills for the last four years at Homestead. I have also taught for two years as a resource teacher (one of them here at Homestead for part of the day) and two years in an autistic self-contained classroom. This year I am excited to say I will be a resource teacher again at Homestead.
