Miss Johnson

Dear First Grade Families,

          Welcome to First Grade at Shepard School! My name is Breanna Johnson and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing together.

          I am a Columbian native and love living here. I tried to leave my first year of college, but there’s truly no place like home. I went to college at Columbia College here in town. I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology and finished my education in the Master’s program. So I have an elementary teaching degree and Master’s in Teaching. I am excited to be done with school! This is my very first year of full time teaching and I am so exciting to take this journey with you all. For the last year and a half I have been a substitute teacher and last year I did two extended positions in third and fourth grade here at Shepard. During those long term jobs I fell in love with Shepard and I truly believe it is the place for me. I feel so honored to be a part of this great school and the amazing first grade team. 

           If you have any questions or anything you would like to discuss with me I am a very willing listener. It is extremely important to me to have an open and honest relationship with the parents of my students, so please feel free to approach me about anything. I can generally be reached at school until 5:30 each day. After that time you can contact me on my cell (819-0118) or you may reach me on my school email. If you choose to contact me using email please know that I am unable to check my email while class is in session. If you have a message that is time sensitive (change of pick-up arrangements, etc.) please call the office. I will do my best to be prompt with my response either by phone or email.

          Thank you for being an active member in the partnership between teacher, student and parent. Together we will set and reach many goals over the next several months, and I can’t wait!
