My name is Shea Owens and I have been in the education field for 6 years. This is my third year here at Joy Preparatory Academy, serving as the Pre- K Associate teacher. Previously, I educated young scholars as a lead Pre-K teacher in Macomb community schools and as a paraprofessional. I received my Associates Degree in Early Childhood and Bachelors in Elementary Education. I have a three-year old son, who is the light of my universe. Together, we enjoy outdoor games and bicycling. During my free time, I enjoy shopping, reading and the artistry of makeup. I found myself truly enjoying, caring for and guiding young children at a young age. My favorite part about teaching is experiencing that smile and connection, when I have helped a child with something as little as writing their first name and learning something new. I look forward to a great, educational school year.
