Mr. Kyle


My name is Kyle Johnson and I am your school counselor.  I was born and raised in Iowa and am about to enter my 15th year as an educator and my 2nd year as your school counselor.  I've been a social studies teacher, a special education teacher, a volleyball coach and a high school counselor.

I enjoy running, golfing, watching and talking sports, fishing, hiking, camping, going up north, and spending time with my fiance and our dog, Lucy. 

Here are a few of my Goals for this school year:

  • To give all students the academic, social-emotional and college and career development skills they need.
  • To help provide a supportive and fun school environment for all students.
  • To help students be a good friend and citizen and discover new things about themselves.

I'm excited for the upcoming school year and a chance to see some familiar faces.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions or need anything.
