    Welcome Kindergarten Hawks!  My name is Carla Johnson!  This year you will be a Goldfish!  I'm so excited to be a part of the Hillside Kindergarten Grade Team. 

    This is my seventh year in Loudoun county.  This will be my sixth year at Hillside Elementary.  This is my 19th year teaching elementary school.  I've taught predominately in kindergarten, but have also taught Pre-K, 1st and 2nd grade.    

    I'm married and have three beautiful children and we live in Leesburg.  I'm originally from Long Island, New York.  I love to spend time outside riding my bike or walking on the W&OD trail.  When I have free time, I love to find a quiet place to read.  I have my Masters in Elementary Education from Dowling College in New York. 

    Teaching is my passion.  I love creating lifelong learners who are excited to explore new ideas. Seeing the excitement and joy in my students' eyes when they learn something new is uplifting.  I look forward to a wonderful school year!
