We must sail sometimes with the wind
                             and sometimes against it - but
                    we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
                                                                                                      - Oliver Wendell Holmes

About Me
Welcome to my home page. My name is Joanne Pryor and I teach at Winter Park High School in Winter Park, Florida. I am the curriculum leader for the Language Arts Department and I teach sophomore English. This year I volunteered to teach the sophomores who do not have a 2.0 GPA. I plan on teaching world literature, writing and grammar. My curriculum centers around respect and responsibility.

I am a graduate of the University of Central Florida and Cocoa High School  (Alumni Site). I am currently working on a masters in Educational Media at UCF.

Traveling is a love of mine and one of my favorite places to visit is Rome. My maternal grandparents were born in Italy. You may wish to visit my mom's first cousin's home page to see a picture of my maternal great-grandparents and the genealogy site for the Tesori's.
