Ms. S.

I’m Ms. S and I’m honored to join the John A. Johnson community.  Before arriving at JAJ, I taught for 2 years in White Bear Lake and 5 years at Mounds Park Academy.  My “home” is Montana, but I’ve lived in Utah and south Florida as well as Minnesota. 

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been interested in how our brains learn.  That interest led me to study language and the process of learning to read.  I eventually decided to focus my studies on exceptional learners.  Something I believe strongly is that each and every child deserves a great education that prepares them to be successful in life.   

I live with my three kids, my husband, and a very large dog named Jake.
