Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kellie Joyner
Hello Knights! My name is Ms. Joyner, and I am from Denver, NC. I teach band grades 6-8 here at J.N. Fries. I recently graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a bachelor's in K-12 music education. I have experience working as a woodwind specialist with Mount Pleasant Middle School, Mount Pleasant High School, Myers Park High School, and Cuthbertson High school. I am primarily a clarinetist and I have performed in the university’s top ensembles. These include both wind ensemble and orchestra. These ensembles have given me opportunities to perform nationally and internationally during my time in college.
In my free time, I enjoy drinking iced coffee and spending time with my fiance and our two puppies!
I am so excited for the 2021-22 school year and I cannot wait to make music with each and every one of you!
