Joy Isbell

Scott Valley Unified School District
Siskiyou County
Joy Isbell is a firm believer of communicating expectations and will introduce herself to new families by letting them know that she is "firm, fair, and fun". Full of humor and common sense, this "small-town" girl will tell you that leading the elementary school in her hometown, in the true Northern California, is the best job in the world. Joy has worked in education for fourteen years both in elementary and secondary. The last five years have seen her leading the elementary school that she once attended. Joy is passionate about her school and the culture she has created with her team of educators. She's eager to share the simple practices, that she wasn't taught in principal school, which she has found effective in transforming school culture. Joy would love to help you efficiently create the school culture you want by "working smarter, not harder".
