KLynn Johnson: 4th Grade

KLynn Johnson
Mrs. Johnson is one of our amazing Fourth grade teachers who not only teaches her students but teaches any student who needs to become 'better'. This year our 4th grade has implemented a 'Dragon Training' daily support program where each student is assessed and given the needed instruction to increase their own level of learning and understanding. Mrs. Johnson also provides additional support through her 'morning math' option for students who need even more extra supports. Morning math is done on her own time and she is always willing to do whatever is necessary for the kids. Two years ago she was our school Math Specialist where she offered morning math several days a week for students in all grades. She also worked with and over saw the middle school students who would volunteer to help with math tutoring before school. Mrs. Johnson is an amazing teacher and we are lucky to have her on our staff.

Christine Heywood
Christine Heywood: 5th Grade

When I think of 5th grade I think of Mrs. Heywood and US History. No one does it better than her! Mrs. Heywood’s influence on our students, faculty, and community is shown through her love for our country and the privileges that come from being a US citizen. Not only do her students benefit from her passion but the entire 5th grade as well. Our students will never forget about being a good citizen because Mrs. Heywood’s love and pride is felt in every aspect of her teaching. She expects every child to rise to the challenge of his/her potential. Mrs. Heywood is also one member of our building leadership team who sees the big picture we have for all of our students and supports it fully. A few years ago Mrs. Heywood was an instructor for our staff and she helped 17 of our teachers recieve their math endorsement. We would be lost without her and know that we are lucky to have her on our team.
