Ms. Donna Johnson
HELLO and WELCOME to my page!
Let me tell you a little about myself:
I started teaching over 30 years ago! I graduated with a degree in Special Education from William Paterson College( now University) in 1987! I spent 15 years of my teaching career teaching in a private school for children with behavioral challenges. During my time there I started a preschool disabled program which I won two awards for, Teacher of The Year for the Region and Teacher of the Year for the State of New Jersey. I am very proud of these awards.
When Midland School was looking to start a preschool disabled program, I was introduced to the superintendent by my friend Mrs. Weiner ( the former Music teacher here). During the interview I was told the position was half a day preschool disabled teacher and half a day kindergarten teacher. So I obtained my elementary education certification and began teaching here at Midland in 2003. In 2005 I was Midland School's Teacher of the Year...another very proud moment in my life! In addition to preschool disabled and kindergarten, I have taught workshop A, resource room and have been an inclass support teacher. This school year I am teaching:
Resource Room Math for grades 4, 5 and 6
In-class Support for 6th grade Science and Social Studies
I also have a Master's Degree in Learning Disabilities with an LDTC endorsement.
I am very happy to be here at Midland School. I truly LOVE teaching and I thank you for reading my page!
