Shaylee Joyner grew up in Walla Walla, Washington. After graduating from Walla Walla High School she attended Weber State University where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. She went on to earn a Master’s in Math Education from Western Governors.

Joyner began her teaching career eight years ago in Cache County where she taught sixth grade for two years. She then taught sixth grade for one year in Weber School District before accepting a job at Mountain Green Middle School as a sixth-grade teacher when it opened five years ago.

“I became a teacher because I loved going to school when I was a kid,” said Joyner. “I had great teachers who made it a fun place to be and I wanted to be able to do the same for my students. I love to build relationships with my students and see them achieve a goal that they have been working hard for. Sixth graders are so much fun and I love laughing with them every day!”

Joyner lives in Weber County with her husband of 13 years, Damon, who is a professor at WSU. They have a seven-month-old son Vonn. 

In her spare time, Joyner loves to spend time with her family outside. She likes to hike, travel and take her dogs for walks. She also likes to bake and binge-watch a good TV show. λ
