Hello and welcome! My name is Belinda Johnson and I cannot wait to teach 2nd grade this year at Andersen Elementary!
My Education and Professional Background
I grew up in Australia and while studying my undergraduate degree in college I had an opportunity to study abroad in the US. After I graduated with my BA I decided to move to the US permanently. I have recently completed my Masters in Elementary Education from ASU. While completing my MEd I had experience in both 1st grade and 4th grade. I taught at 2nd gifted at Knox Gifted Academy for 3 years! I am looking forward to our exciting adventures in 2nd grade this year!
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that all children have the potential to learn, grow and become the best they can be. I feel that it is incredibly important that as teachers we are providing the opportunities for student growth. Children should be allowed to make mistakes and learn from them and I feel that the best place for students to be able to do that is in a place where compassion, support and encouragement is present from all teachers and peers. I believe that together we can help each other reach new goals.
