Ms. Spencer


Welcome to second grade! My name is Joy Spencer and I will be your child's teacher for the English side of the Dual Immersion Program. This is my second year teaching at Alturas Elementary School, and I am so excited about this new school year! I love living close to the school, and you will probably see me biking through the neighborhood or walking my three dogs! You may also see me snowboarding on Baldy with my amazing son, Elk. My interests are hiking, biking, backpacking, baking cakes, and playing guitar. However, my true passion is in education.

I earned a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Tennessee. After graduation, I taught as an environmental educator for three years before discovering I wanted to return to school to study elementary education. I then earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I have been teaching and working with children for the past 20 years, and this is my tenth year with the Blaine County School District. Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have as we go into an exciting school year!
