Joni has worked within alternative high school settings since 1985. She ran an on-grounds school at an emancipation program for 14 years, and has been in District #11 since 2006.

“It has been my first choice always to work with students that were struggling in some way, to help them recover their strengths, and to help enable them to graduate and move toward what they want for their lives. Often the staff that chooses to work in a setting like this, are exceptional in some way. The variety of their gifts makes the setting really full of creativity. It can insure that there is a person and a place for every student. I enjoy being on that team.”
