Mrs. Joanna Penission

Hello Tiger students and families!  My name is Joanna Penission and I am thrilled to be teaching English I this year.  I grew up outside of Winston-Salem, NC and am a 1997 graduate of Elon University.  My career began in professional sports, working with The Miami Dolphins, The Flroida Marlins, The Indy Racing League and the Indianapolis Colts.   After starting a family, I changed careers and have been working in education for almost 10 years now.  I've spent the last several years at MPES and am happy to see familiar faces here at MPHS.  I love living and working in the Mount Pleasant community with my husband, 2 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats.  In my off time I enjoy reading, attending my kids' various games, meets and activities, as well as spending time outdoors, especially in the mountains.  Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns you have.  I'm looking forward to working with each of you.
