Bio

I am married to AJ Joiner and a mom to Jordan, age 18 and Drew, age 14.  I am also step-mom to Andria, age 23 and Matthew, age 18.  My husband, AJ, is a Cobb County Fireman and EMT.  He is also owner of a medical transport service called AmTran. My family and I live in Temple, Georgia. We are blessed with our first grandson, Vince.  He is 21 months old and the most precious little boy in the whole wide world.  I enjoy exercising, shopping, traveling, spending time with my family, friends, and most of all putting my heart & soul into teaching. Teaching is definitely my "calling in life" and I could not imagine doing anything else.
