Hello! I’m Ms. Johnson, but all my students call me Ms.J. I’ve been a teacher since 1998 (has it really been that long?!?!), and I’m a lucky person to be able to say that I LOVE my job! This is my 3rd year here at IREC, and I have a lovely class of grade 2s this year.
I was born in Edmonton, and I lived on an acreage west of Beaumont until we moved to Camrose when I was in Grade 3. After I received my BEd from the University of Calgary, I taught grades K through 6 in Delia, Eckville and now IREC. I live with my family (my husband Jason and our two children Sloane and Beck) in Red Deer. We love to play inside and out, travel and read together.
I am passionate about learning and helping children learn. I hope that my students and parents use this blog to talk about and share what we are learning about in school.
Here is a picture of me when I first began my own school adventures. My kindergarten grad photo circa 1979/1980!
