Hello students and parents!
My name is is Kelli Johns, and I am excited to be your 2nd grade teacher this year! This will be my ninth year of teaching. I previously taught 1st grade for three years and 2nd grade for four years. Last year I was an Instructional Support and S.T.E.A.M. ToSA (Teacher on Special Assignment). I enjoyed this new challenge of supporting teachers with implementing new lesson designs as well as modeling lessons that incorporated Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
I was born in Texas and moved to California as a child. I played Varsity tennis in high school. I earned my Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction as well as my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from California State University, Bakersfield. I have been married for eight wonderful years. We have a son who is 1 year old and we love him so much! This summer, we decided to move our family to the beautiful state of Colorado. I also have a cat and a dog.
Four years ago, I completed my 1st half-marathon in Santa Cruz, California. I've run a few more half-marathons since then. My favorite was running the Nike Women's half-marathon in San Fransisco since I'm a huge Nike fan! In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, being active, and making desserts!
