Joni Manning Bio

Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked as a social worker in Henry County for 10+ years. My passion for working with children and helping others, led me back to college to earn my teaching licensure. Last fall, I was fortunate enough to student teach at Van Allen, and fell in love with this school community! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my 3 children and 2 dogs. My family recently moved to an acreage outside of New London where I have plenty of space to partake in my favorite hobbies: gardening, hiking, and enjoying nature.
I look forward to this upcoming school year and truly believe the old saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am very excited to be a part of your child’s village, and look forward to opportunities to assist you on this journey. Please feel free to contact me with questions, concerns, or just updates regarding your student.
