Bachelor of Arts in History and Social Studies K-12 Education, Kean University

Master of Education degree in Media and Instructional Technology, University of West Georgia



I have had an awesome experience teaching in the north and the south.  I have been in the teaching over 17 years.  I taught in various roles ranging from elementary through collegiate.  It has truly been a magnificent experience and I continue to learn more everyday.  The education world continues to change everyday and I look forward to equipping  my students with tools to be successful and faciltating while they discover their highest potential.  I teach because I love to learn and that  is what I try to instill in every child I teach. I currently teach fourth grade science and social social studies. I have taught in various grade levels at Burnett.  I also love to teach math.


I am joyful Joy Slaughter.   I reside in Douglasville, GA and have lived here for 12 years.  I grew up in Roselle, NJ and resided there for a great portion of my life. I have worked in the Douglas County School System for 12 years. I have been a Burnett Tiger Cub for all twelve years.  I absolutely enjoy teaching and molding my students to reach their full potential and become productive citizens of society.  My future goals are to complete my Specialist degree in Early Childhood Education.
