Hello My Name Is...
Welcome to the wonderful world of learning! Hi, I'm Joice Forster, and I truly love teaching! It is an absolute joy to be with children each and every day and watch them grow into confident, enthusiastic learners.
I began my teaching career as a 6th grade teacher in Trimont, Minnesota. I then came to Fairmont and have taught 3rd, 4th, and kindergarten, as well as coaching sports. Since 1994, I've been a looping teacher, staying with my students for two full academic years. I enjoy this immensely as it gives me the time and opportunity to really get to know my students and their parents, as well as the fulfillment of witnessing tremendous growth! There are always tears on that final day of school, as the children are more than my students, they are "my kids." I received my bachelors's degree from Southwest State University and my master's degree from University of Minnesota-Mankato. I have been selected as Fairmont Area School's Teacher of the Year and was also a Minnesota Teacher of the Year semi-finalist.
