Joni Sellars

Assistant Teacher

The Smiling Strawberries


Mrs. Joni was born in Nebraska and went to several colleges in the Midwest: St. Paul Bible College in Minnesota, Northeast Community College in Nebraska, and Oklahoma Bible College. Her major was Pre-Nursing.

Education and the love of learning have been a large part of Joni’s life. One of her greatest joys has been home educating her five children, most of them from pre-school through high-school graduation. She also enjoyed teaching 2s and 3s in Sunday school for more than 20 years. She recently worked as a group leader, PreK group leader and assistant site leader at SACC. Joni has also been a nanny.

Joni wants to work with preschoolers so she can share her love of learning with them. She has seen the excitement and joy on many children’s faces when they are exposed to new topics. Joni loves to get down on a child’s level and interact individually with them. She wants to make a difference in the life of each child she meets.

In her free time, Joni enjoys reading, studying, music, walking and gardening. She is the founder of Healthful Endeavors, a health and wellness company. She completed her Clinical Herbalist, Certified Women’s Health Educator and Certified Family Health Educator Certificate in 2014 and wants to educate and encourage individuals and their families toward better health. 

Joni and her husband Russ have five children: two children who live at home and three married children who live in Missouri, Colorado and Oklahoma, respectively. Mrs. Sellars delights in each of her children, their spouses and her nine grandchildren.  Mr. and Mrs. Sellars make their home in Franklin.
