Welcome, Ms. Piedmont!
Name: Joy Piedmont
Previous job(s): HS Technology Integrator and 9th Grade Dean at LREI (Little Red School House & Elisabeth Irwin High School)
Something about Brearley that appealed to you: Everyone I spoke to about Brearley talked about the curious students who loved to learn, and that's so exciting to hear as a school librarian! I'm really looking forward to getting to know the students as readers and learners.
Favorite food (sweet, savory, etc.): pasta
Coffee or tea (or neither): Both! Coffee in the morning and herbal tea at night.
Favorite music/band: pop/rock and musical theater
Favorite thing about working in New York: It's so hard to choose one thing, but at the moment I'm appreciating all of the outdoor parks and public spaces.
Hobbies: running, embroidery, podcasting
Fun fact(s) about you: I save the Playbills from all the shows I see. I had a lot when I was a kid, but they got lost when my parents moved out of my childhood home, so I vowed to keep better track of them as an adult—I've now filled eight binders!
