Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jeanette Johnson
I am excited to begin my seventh year at Trailside Middle School, as a 7th grade English teacher. I am a Northern Virginia native. I graduated from Radford University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications with a minor in marketing. Having worked in the private sector for several years and in the process of raising three children, I discovered my true passion for working with children within the school environment. This desire to become a teacher lead me to Shenandoah University, where I obtained my teaching degree in English.
I believe learning is an active engagement between students, teachers, parents, and the community. Our classroom will apply this model of active learning. Students will see the connections from what we learn in class and then apply them to real-life situations.
"Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn."
A few of my favorite things to do, outside of the classroom, are hiking, swimming, antiquing, reading, and hanging out at the beach with my family and friends.
Calendar items and assignments will be posted to Schoology.
