Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Joanne Cox

Hello, my name is Joanne Cox. I have been teaching for over fourteen years between Illinois and the United States Virgin Islands. I Graduated from the University of the Virgin Islands with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration. I also have Master of Science Degree in Education from Walden University online and a Master of Education degree from Governor State University.

Originally, I am from the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. I lived in the United States Virgin Islands for sixteen years before I moved to Illinois. My family is a unit of four; my husband of 18 years, my seventeen-year-old son and my thirteen-year-old daughter. My passions are reading, math, baking and icing cakes.

I teach because I love to experience the ‘aha’ moment with my students; the moment when the concept finally clicks and sequential understanding of the concept falls into place. That look of pure wonder and fulfillment on the faces of my students is all the impetus I need to keep going.
