Hi Students and Families!
I have been special education teacher in St. Paul Public Schools for over eight years. I've been away from the classroom for a few years working as the Sped Coach. While I've learned a lot in this role and strengthened my leadership skills, I really missed working directly with students. Thus, I decided it was time for me to get back into the classroom.
This year, I am really looking forward to working with students again. Also, I have a student teacher working with me this year, which is great because two teachers in a classroom are better than one. His name is Mr. Pharaoh and I know that he will be an awesome addition to JHS. I hope to learn as much from him as he does from me.
Johnson High School is a wonderful place to work. At Johnson, administrator, teachers, and students are committed to creating and maintaining a building culture where all students will thrive academically and socially. I wouldn't want to teacher anywhere else. I also believe it takes a village to teach our students; therefore, I look forward to teaming up with families to make student's educational experience more successful and rewarding.
