My name is Leanne Johnson, and I have been teaching for the past 32 years. I am married to my wonderful husband Kyle, and we have a beautiful daughter named Kylee. My daughter is a freshman at UCA where both my husband and I went to college. We have 3 goofy dogs, a doodle, a terrier and a Vizsla along with 2 hamsters my daughter did not take with her to college. I grew up in Helena/West Helena, Arkansas, and then moved to UCA for college. After college, I started my teaching career in PCSSD.
I have been a part of Springdale School District for the past 16 years, teaching Gifted and Talented across the district. I have worked at several elementary schools and at Hellstern Middle School while in Springdale. I love working with the GT students, providing creative challenges, and Enrichment to all the students I have been able to work with. My strengths are math challenges, and problem solving. I also enjoy sharing STEM/STEAM lessons with the students.
Before teaching in Springdale I was a GT teacher in PCSSD, and worked at SLUFY (Summer Laureate University for Youth) at UALR in the summers. I started my teaching career in PCSSD as a 4th grade teacher, then moved schools and grade levels into 5th grade for 2 years, before I became a GT Facilitator. I was a GT Facilitator in several schools across PCSSD, including the GT Specialty School at College Station, where I was the 3-5 grade Math Facilitator.
On weekends, I love cheering on the Razorbacks, at football, soccer, basketball, etc. I also enjoy going to the lake to relax and unwind. Weekends also include running to one or two of the farmer's markets, and walking around looking at all the things they have to sell. In my spare time I love to travel, go to new places, and see new things. When I am "stuck at home" I love working on a puzzle, cooking, or watching HGTV. I also try to go see my students at activities outside of school, soccer, football, basketball, plays, etc., when possible.
Tomorrow is “Dress for Success” Day!! Picture day at school tomorrow so dress your best!
Third graders work hard to show what they have learned. We ended our week celebrating successes with some laughs and smiles.
Tomorrow is the first day of Red Ribbon Week! Be sure to wear red tomorrow!
