When I arrived six years ago at Helotes Elementary, I told the children that dreams really do come true. Yes, my dream to become the principal of one of the best schools in NISD has come true! My name is Rhonda Johnson and I am thrilled and honored to be the principal of Helotes Elementary.

Now a little bit about myself. I am a proud product of Northside schools attending both E.M. Pease Middle School and Oliver Wendell Holmes High School. After graduating from NISD, I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Reading from Southwest Texas State University and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from The University of Texas in San Antonio.

I have 30 years of experience in education. My first teaching experience was at John Glenn Elementary where I taught kindergarten. At Scobee Elementary, I taught first, second and fourth grade. In addition, I taught special education in the Academic Mastery Center at Scobee. I spent 3 years teaching middle school at Youree Drive Middle School in Shreveport, Louisiana. At Boone Elementary, I taught special education in the inclusion Content Mastery Center and I was the special education campus coordinator at Evers Elementary.  Prior to coming to Helotes Elementary, I was the vice principal at Anna Mae “Mas” Nichols Elementary for 3 years and William J. Thornton Elementary for 2 years. This year is my ninth year as the principal of Helotes Elementary. Using my teaching experience, enthusiasm for learning, and love for children, it is my goal to support the students, parents, and staff at Helotes Elementary. I feel fortunate to be a part of the Helotes Family where children come first.
