Mrs. Joy Pickering

I am so excited to join Brave Nation! This will be my fourteenth year to teach and first year at NeSmith Elementary. I have two children and two furbabies. My husband and I are both native Texans and love being part of Community ISD. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in reading from Baylor University and a Master's degree in Educational Technology from Univeristy of North Texas. I am excited to teach 5th grade ELAR and Social Studies. This is going to be an exciting year, and I cannot wait to get started.
