Ms. Joy Fouche’Sixth Grade Teacher/Enrichment Coordinator Odessy of the Mind/Geography Club
Hello, my name is Joy Fouche’ and I am very excited to be the 6th grade teacher at Word of Life Christian Academy. It is a privilege and honor to be a part of this institution that has a tradition of honoring God and educating students.
This year I have been blessed to teach an awesome group of young people that will one day lead our country. Because of this calling on their lives, I challenge them to “Do Their Best and Be Their Best for Christ”.
Our curriculum this year is by far an advanced curriculum that takes our students to the next level. Our English curriculum is a teacher’s dream in that it teaches the part of speech with immediate application of the concept through writing. This curriculum prompts writing creatively as well as various styles of writing. Our Math curriculum is one of the best I’ve used. The concepts are taught and reviewed daily to build confidence. Our Science curriculum is “hands on”. The 6th grade students perform experiments with every lesson.
To me, our success as teachers doesn’t depend on how many students you have in your classroom during the day, but how many are in your classroom after school because they want to be. The relationship we develop with our students last a lifetime.
Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program.
