Welcome! My name is Mrs. Johnson. I am Mull Elementary School's Social Worker. School social workers are trained professionals who provide a critical link between school, home, and community. The focus of School Social Work is on coordinating the efforts of schools, families, and communities toward helping students improve their academic achievement and social, emotional, and behavioral competence by using its unique perspective of viewing the person in his or her environment. (Info from NASW School SW Standards)

WELCOME BACK, STUDENTS!!! This is going to be a great school year! Like last year, I will only be part time at Mull. I will be at Mull on Tuesday and Thursday; the other 3 days a week I will be at Liberty Middle School. Don't worry, don't fret, I will still see all of your smiling faces in classroom guidance. Our schedule will just be a little different. Should there be an emergency in which I am needed, Mrs. Fore will contact me and I can come right over! I look forward to this school year with ALL of you! Love you all! -Mrs. Johnson


Children are our future. We are dedicated to their success and meeting the needs of every child.


Every student matters, every moment counts, and everyone is a learner everyday.


Mull Elementary seeks to create a challenging learning environment that

encourages high expectations for success through development-appropriate instruction that allows for individual differences and learning styles. Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment. Each student's self-esteem is fostered by positive relationships with students and staff. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved in our students' learning.

If your child is having a problem at school, it is important to work with your child's teacher, school social worker, and principal to find solutions. As your child's school social worker, I will partner with the child, family and school personnel to best benefit the child. It is my priority to assist your child, family and school personnel with their education and preparation for life outside of school.
