Meeting an Author

Christian author and speaker, Joy Dekok, was our special guest as part of a writing unit for the third through sixth graders.  She shared experiences from her days in elementary school that lead to her becoming a published author. In sharing her journey, students learned that following their dreams takes hard work and determination.  She inspired students to embrace all God calls them to be.

Kindergarten through second grade students enjoyed listening to Joy reading her book Raccoon Tales and talk about her experiences raising and releasing five raccoons.

Many thanks to Joy for her generosity in sharing her time, books, and wisdom with us!  Visit to learn more about Joy and to see her books.
