Joanna Davis | Lead Teacher, Match Middle School
Joanna Davis was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. She graduated from Tufts University in 2008 with a B.A. in English. Immediately following graduation, she began working at Match Middle School in its first year as a member of its full-time tutoring corps. As a tutor she realized she had a knack for teaching and was eager to expand her reach. She became a part of the very first Match Teacher Residency cohort and learned the ins and outs of classroom management. After graduating from MTR, Joanna was hired to teach 6th Grade English at Match Middle School and has been there ever since. In her time at Match, Joanna has served as a grade level leader, as Humanities Department Chair and as a member of the Leadership Team. In the 2015-2016 school year she will be adding “teacher coaching and development” to this list of responsibilities.
