“Mrs. Johanson makes learning fun. She does such a great job at making each student feel special and successful. She knows how to challenge her students with positivity and encouragement. She brings joy to her classroom (and her zoom calls 😉) In a year of constant changes and huge uncertainty I’m so grateful my child has had Mrs. Johanson to bring a loving sense of normalcy and excitement to her school experience.”

“Mrs. Johanson is incredibly sweet and loving to the student’s she teaches. She goes above and beyond to make my daughter feel safe and right at home. One day, while at school, my daughter ripped a hole in her coat and Mrs. Johanson stayed behind to sew it closed for her. Most teachers would show empathy however Mrs. Johanson went above and beyond. My daughter loves her class and thoroughly enjoys learning. She feels comfortable to speak up and ask questions knowing she’ll get the help she needs. Thanks for everything you do Mrs. Johanson!!”

“Mrs. Johanson is the best teacher. She is always singing with them, doing fun programs, she absolutely loves her class and the students adore her! She spends extra time with my son who is struggling with reading and he is doing so much better because of it! We absolutely love her and everyone in who has ever had her would agree with me that she is the Best 2nd grade teacher! ❤️”
