Teacher Bio

Joi Bostic

Since Joi Bostic was a little girl, everyone around her would probably say that she would grow up to teach others. Although she would hold classes with her stuffed animals, she resisted and protested against a career as a teacher. Her formal education had her on track to enter corporate America in the area of marketing management. However, after college, Joi finally followed her “true calling” and entered the classroom in 1988. Since then she has taught college credit courses, traveled the country delivering workshops and seminars and designed hundreds of courses and workshops. After resigning from higher education, Joi entered the field of real estate where she successfully represented buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants and investor. During this time, she found herself missing the classroom. So, she combined her two areas and started teaching real estate courses. Joi’s classes are fun and interactive with the goals of ensuring that learning takes place in an enjoyable safe environment and each student walks away with an understanding of the material. Joi holds a Pre-License Instructor and Broker license. She is a GAR-PIE Approved Instructor as well as a Certified Instructor of NAR Designation Courses.
