To celebrate a job well done after summer classes, Shara brought teachers and staff Tiff's Treats! As you can see, our faculty has a love of cookies. This is how school should be!
Work at Joy
The Joy school does not currently have any teaching openings. We encourage you to monitor our website for future opportunities to join our faculty.
The Joy School Difference
The Joy School is an extraordinary place to work and make a difference in the lives of children and their families. We foster a culture of collaboration, respectfulness and inclusion. Our exceptionally low turnover rate among administration and faculty is a testament to the positive climate at the School.
The Joy School seeks employees who demonstrate outstanding skill in teaching students with learning differences. While we require a four-year degree for all faculty, it is even more important teachers demonstrate two critical qualities: compassion and analytical ability. We find that individuals who possess these two important skills find the most success and best serve our students and families.
Since its inception, The Joy School committed to providing competitive salaries and benefits for its employees, including a retirement plan, strong health care plan, life insurance, long and short-term disability and a cafeteria plan. The School is committed to professional growth for all faculty and staff and provides opportunities to attend conferences and workshops throughout the country. These opportunities for growth are based on individual needs and preferences, rather than a “one size fits all” approach.
Top Workplaces Houston
The Joy School is proud to be named one of Houston's Top Workplaces for the fourth year in a row! We were ranked #6 in the small businesses category and won a special award for Meaningfulness. This is the second time for us to win in the Meaningfulness category. The first time we won was in 2015. In 2017, we were also thrilled to receive a special award for Appreciation.
Um, Our Families ROCK at Teacher Appreciation Week
We may be biased, but we think our teachers have an incredible gift for educating kids with learning differences. That said, our TJS families might have an even greater gift for showing their love during Teacher Appreciation Week!
Here are just some of the gifts, notes and overall love we received over the past week.
A huge THANK YOU to our wonderful, considerate families! It's an honor to serve you and your kids.
Mrs. Flowers' class wrote what they love about her and school on sandwich board-style signs!
Ms. Dorr is our Transition Coordinator. She helps our families throughout their mainstreaming process. We're so glad this 8th grader had a positive experience thanks to Ms. Dorr's work!
Mrs. Carey's students made her this scarf with hands on either end out of construction paper. When they extend the hands in both directions, it represents how much they love Mrs. Carey ("Thiiiiis much!").
The note card says, "Thank you for bringing joy to learning and the school!"
This cardboard unicorn that a middle schooler gifted her math teacher is actually wrapped in the first 400 numbers of pi!
This card accompanied a lottery ticket given to Mrs. Kosley.
