Ms. Joyce Anne Michaels MEd 

I attended and graduated from Blanchet High School and went on to earn an associate degree in Computer Science. Later attending the University of Washington where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Cognitive Psychology, and a Master’s in Education. 

I have been teaching at the Elementary level for 10 years.  My first several years I taught at Holy Rosary, Seattle, and the past five years at St Brendan in Bothell. I am thrilled to be starting my 11th year of teaching, here at St Pius X! 

I feel called to the teaching Ministry, and am passionate about the social, emotional, and educational needs of your children. 

 I have one daughter, Grace, who is headed off to college this Fall.  I enjoy Arts and Crafts, and singing. 

 Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
