About Me

Educational History:

I attended and graduated from GPHS and Wichita State University. I attended Emporia State for a year and a semester before transferring to WSU to finish out my degree in Teaching (Bachelors in the Art of Education).

Current Position:

I began teaching at GPE in 2017 and have been here since! I started off teaching 3rd grade (all subjects), then moved up with the class to 4th grade to teach Math and Science. I have been teaching 4th grade Math and Science ever since!

Family Information:

I was married on November 1, 2014 to Glenn Lilly. He and I attended GPE and GPHS. We were one year apart in school, but our families have always been close.

I have two boys, Lawrence and Joseph Lilly. Lawrence was born in March of 2019, and Joseph was born in March of 2022. Their birthdays are 4 years and 11 days apart! We have plans for both of our boys to attend school at Garden Plain!

I have 2 dogs, Chubbs and Chief. Chubbs had a brother, Chunk, who passed away in March of 2022. Chief joined our family in December of 2021!


Personal Information:


My name is JoAnna Lilly and this is my tenth year of teaching, but my seventh year at GPE. I live in Garden Plain with my husband, Glenn Lilly and our two sons. My mother, Vera Werner, also used to teach. I actually used to go to school here….a few years ago. I went to college at Emporia State University, but transferred and graduated through Wichita State University. It feels so good to be teaching here at GPE. I am very excited for this school year. When I am not teaching, I am hanging out with my family!
