Mrs. Joan Spiers

About: Teaches Math for the following subjects: Pre-Algebra through Pre-Calculus. I came to teaching as a second career. I worked as an Electrical Engineer for 14 years before leaving the workforce to raise my two children. I started in Education through volunteer tutoring in the schools. Because of the excellent results from tutoring, I was hired as a full time Math and Science Teacher. I love to share my knowledge of Math with my students.

Education: I earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Tennessee Technological University.

Teaching Since: 2012. I taught Math full time at a small private school for 6 years. Before teaching Math, I did part-time tutoring for over 6 years.
Teaching at Ribet Academy: I started teaching at Ribet Academy as a long term substitute teacher in the Spring of 2019. I became regular staff beginning the 2019-2020 school year.

Favorite part about Ribet Academy: I love the environment of Ribet Academy. The class size is small enough that I can give individual attention to students during class. The Administration is so supportive that I can concentrate on just teaching.
