Ms. Johnson

Welcome to Kindergarten!

My name is Leah Johnson and I have been teaching at Galtier since 2018! I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. I then continued my journey as a gopher and went on to get my master’s degree in elementary education. I am currently working towards my K-12 principal licensure.

Growing up, I was inspired by many of my elementary teachers, which led me to my dream profession of teaching. I strive to create a classroom community where kids of all backgrounds are welcome, appreciated, and celebrated. I have so much to learn from the students I teach and I hope to bring each students’ unique experiences and backgrounds into my teaching.

Some of my favorite things to do include boating, spending time with friends, and traveling! I am originally from La Crosse, Wisconsin and I love taking weekend trips back home to spend time with my family.

The best way to reach me is by email at I check my email many times throughout the day and will do my best to contact you by the end of the school day. If you are connected to Seesaw, you can also reach me there. If you are not able to reach me by email or through our classroom communication app, please feel free to send notes with your student in their backpack.

I am looking forward to an exciting year in kindergarten! Go gators!
