Ms. Montgomery

Welcome to Johnson High School, and my website! 

The picture to the left is of me and Ms. Power with one of my favorite authors, Rainbow Rowell. I'm on the right!

I've taught at Johnson since 2007, so I know for a fact that JHS is special. I live in St. Paul and I have two toddlers who are so fun and funny. They keep me busy! If I don't respond right away, I haven't ignored you. If I haven't graded something, I'm probably going to get it graded soon, but feel free to email me about it. I have two email addresses: and, I check them both. Email me because and I am ready to help!
I love reading and I love talking with other people about their books. I believe that writing well can get you what you want. My job is to make you a better reader and writer, and speaker, period. Let's do it!


  • Distance Learning, Fall 2020

    At Johsnon, we say that what hurts my brother or my sister hurts me. That has never been more true than when we are in the midst of a global pandemic that is causing people to get sick and die on a scale that none of us have seen before. Thank you so much for giving up experiences in high school, both large and small, to protect yourself, the students at JHS, and our community. Distance learning will be difficult, but we can do it together. If you are having trouble with websites, apps, or your iPad, please get in touch in any way you can. I want to help and so does our school community.
