Razorback Reading - Students are encouraged to read at least 20 minutes per day at home in the evening.  Your student has two books checked out to them at all times. Proven data shows that when this is done, there is increased likelihood that your student's scores could be in the 90th percentile on any standardized test taken.  This means that your student could possibly perform in the top 10 percent when this daily reading time is set aside.  Hopefully, you can help bring this to be!

Ms. Joy's Teaching Philosophy
I welcome you to the James S. Middle School Library. I am the Librarian/Media/Technology Specialist and have taught twenty-five years in TylerISD and eight years elsewhere. Our Library is located upstairs on the South side of the campus and is open for student use from 7:45-4:30 on Monday-Thursday, or later when necessary. Friday's schedule is from 7:45-3:45.
 
Loving kids is what I do! It has never been easy for me to decide which interests I wish to share more: appreciating literature, all kinds of music with keyboard and guitar, all art/design history through various medium, or athletic endeavors which fall only slightly behind my first-mentioned interests. More important to me than all of these, I am a Christian believer. I have been a lifelong runner. and I love basketball, soccer, tennis and even occasionally, golf.  I also love to laugh!  My mantra: "If students read quality writing, they will emulate those same writing skills as they explore their own written expressions."  Helping students find "what they need to know" with higher-ordered thinking queries and research strategies using current, available technology is an on-going challenge that is greatly emphasized.
