I am Joy Hurst the 6th and 7th grade English Teacher. I have been part of the Maroa-Forsyth community for the last nine years. I have three children that attend school in the district. I grew up just down the street and attended Warrensburg-Latham, Our Lady of Lourdes, and St. Teresa. I graduated from Millikin University where I majored in Education. After my son was born, sixteen years ago, I took some time off of teaching to be a homemaker. The 2018-2019 school year will be my second year teaching at the middle school.
When I am away from school, I find myself spending time with my family and working my second job as a trainer for the YDSC swim team.
