Third Grade

Welcome to Third Grade

Third grade is a wonderful adventure where we become in-depth readers, wonderful writers, multiplying mathematicians, scientific slueths, and computer wizards. We will continue being kind, helpful, considerate citizens in our JJE family.

About Mrs. Boyd

This is my 7th year teaching here at Joy James. I am originally from Iowa, where I graduated from Drake University with a degree in Business Administration. After my marriage, my husband and I moved to Portland, Oregon where I attended Lewis and Clark College to complete my elementary teaching certification program. Besides my love of teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, being involved in my church, and spending time with my family.
