Mrs. Johnston

     I am thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher and I know that we will work closely together to ensure that your child makes great strides during this very developmental year. This is my sixteenth year with Loudoun County Public Schools and my second year teaching first grade at Newton-Lee.  I taught second grade at Sterling Elementary for five years, and then I spent five years working for the Department of Instruction as a Pathways Literacy Facilitator. While in that position, I had the pleasure of training and coaching hundreds of kindergarten through second grade teachers, and I learned so much from them along the way. Truth be told, my heart really missed being in the classroom and with children on a daily basis.  Five years ago, I returned to the classroom and began teaching first grade at Ball's Bluff Elementary.  I have grown such a passion for teaching first graders!

     To tell you a little bit more about myself, my husband, Brad, and I live in the Newton-Lee community with our two children, Jack and Hannah. Jack is in fifth grade and Hannah is in second.

     Please feel free to contact me should you ever have any questions or concerns.
