Welcome to 4th Grade!

Hi! My name is Jessica Johnson and I teach 4th grade in room 228 at Lyndale Community School. I started my teaching career in 2010 and have been with Minneapolis Public Schools since 2015. I taught 2nd grade at Anishinabe Academy before coming to Lyndale. Prior to joining Minneapolis Public Schools, I taught at a small charter school for 2 years and taught for 1 year in Columbia Heights.

I attended St. Catherine's University for my teaching degree. While at St. Kate's, I was awarded a grant to attend a Responsive Classroom 1 Seminar. This has helped determine the basis of my teaching philosophy:  to create a warm, inviting classroom environment that promotes equity, strong academics, and social-emotional learning.

I have lived in the Twin Cities for the past 14 years with my husband, 6 year old son and 2 dogs. When not at school, I enjoy reading & playing with my son.
