Welcome to Mrs. Johnston's 5th grade class! I am so excited to get this year started and am very eager to meet each and every one of you!

My Education and Professional Background

The 2018-2019 school year will be my 2nd year teaching as well as my 2nd year in 5th grade! I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology and a Master's degree in Elementary Education. I hold an Elementary Education Certificate from the Arizona Department of Education and also have a Structured English Immersion (SEI) Endorsement.

My Educational Philosophy

It is my belief that all students are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow academically, emotionally, and socially. My goal is to develop each student as a whole and provide them with both the academic and behavioral skills necessary to be successful both in and out of the classroom. I will set high standards for my class while creating a fun, yet structured, classroom environment where students feel supported, respected, and comfortable taking challenging risks and pushing towards their goals. Above all, I want each and every one of my students to develop a love for learning and be proud of their accomplishments!
