Teacher of the Year at Fred Fifer Middle

Joy Eanes

Joy Eanes teaches eighth grade social studies to special needs students at Fred Fifer Middle School in Camden. With 11 years teaching experience, Joy earned a Bachelors degree in Education and a Master of Education from the University of Delaware. “I became a teacher to encourage middle school students to overcome their obstacles with self-confidence and hard work.

One person put my life on the right track in eighth grade, and I continue to teach hoping I can provide others the encouragement they need for a successful life.”
