• Welcome to Our 1st and 2nd Grade Blended Classroom!


    My name is Laurie Johnson and I am originally from Alexandria, Louisiana.  I began teaching in January of 1994 and have taught 5th Grade, Special Education K-6, ESL, and Kindergarten.  I had the pleasure of completing my student teaching requirements in Recife, Brazil where I taught 3rd students at the American School of Recife.  In May of 1995, I served in the United States Peace Corps for 2 years in Karaganda, Kazakhstan where I taught 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students at Secondary School #3 in Karaganda. 

    I believe that I have a wonderful opportunity to make learning fun and exciting.  It is my goal to create a safe, positive, warm and caring environment for your child to learn.  I look forward to a great year!
