About

Joy Barnes-Johnson, Ph.D.

Science educator

I consider myself little more than a curious little black girl  who grew up in a big little city surrounded by an enormous little family that allowed her to sing and dance and plant and reap all of the things she wanted in life. I live and hang out most with my twin sister and precious son. I love and long to spend more time with my brothers and sister, mother and grandmothers…but life requires that I work.

By calling and by choice, I am a teacher. I teach science (mostly Chemistry and Earth Science) in the context of culture and society. I love new technologies but hang on to tried and true methods for learning moreso than those that do what I think is infringe more (or at least I hope). My research interests are in equitable science teaching, equitable evaluation and STEM curriculum development.
