Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Joanna Byrnes

I was born in Memphis, but grew up in North Carolina. I taught for two years in NC before moving back to Memphis in 2000. I taught in a couple of different schools in Memphis before I landed in 2nd grade at Idlewild in 2014. After teaching the past 22ish years, I moved into the role of Instructional Facilitator. Idlewild feels like home and I love working here. In my free time I enjoy watching my daughter play basketball and my son play tennis. Every year, I look forward to spending the summer with friends and family in Michigan.
