Welcome to 6th grade! My name is Kathleen Johnston, and I will be your Language Arts/TAG teacher this year. I have no doubt that this will be an amazing year full of academic and social growth with a ton of fun along the way.  My personal goal is to do all I can to help my students become critical readers and thinkers, wonderfully effective writers, clear communicators, skillful researchers, and enthusiastic life-long learners.

I believe in the importance and value of team work. When parents, teachers, and students work together as one team, amazing things happen. I look forward to working with you to ensure the best possible educational experience! Please feel free to contact me whenever you have a comment, suggestion, or question. Email works best as it is often difficult to have a private conversation during the day.

A little word from Kid President to kick off the year...
