About Me


My name is Joan Davis.  I have worked in the Hempstead Independent School District for 24 years.  I have worked in the Life Skills Department, with the First Grade Team and for the last 19 years in the HES Library (part of the Specials Team).

I have lived in Hempstead for most of my life. I am a 1982 graduate of Hempstead High School and a 1984 graduate of Blinn College with an AAS degree in Business Management.  I have two wonderful sons.  Matthew is a 2005 graduate of Hempstead High School.  Peter is a 2014 graduate of Hempstead High School.  I am glad to say that I believe in giving back to the community that raised me.

I have been very lucky to work with some of the most dedicated, professional and caring people.  I have learned from them and our students and continue to learn more every day.  I have had some wonderful teachers in my life. I am proud to say that most of the women in my family now work or have worked for education in one way or another. 

I am a believer in that everyone is special.  We just open our gifts at different times.

I would like to encourage everyone to read to someone, young or old.  Knowledge is power and reading is the key.
