       Welcome to a fabulous year! My name is Joy Truax. I am happily married to my husband, Mark and we have a precious little boy named, Carter.  I also have a cat named Jack, a cat named Stormy and a dog named Hannah. I am originally from South Florida and moved to Winston Salem in 2006.
       This is my 19th year teaching. I have taught kindergarten,1st and 2nd grades. This is my 13th year teaching in WSFCS and my first year at Southwest Elementary. I set high expectations for myself and my students.
       When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family. We go to the park, the pool, the beach,  books stores and we love to go to thrift stores. I also love butterflies and dragonflies.
