Ms. Heidi Johnson
I grew up in Wendell, NC and still live there. I loved growing up in a small town and can't imagine moving... yet, at least! My family on my mom's side owns about 100 acres of land and we all live on it! I have always wanted to be a teacher and am so blessed to have my dream come true. Helping students enjoy coming to school and having a safe place to learn and grow is my passion. School wasn't always easy for me, so I want to help students have a great experience! I attended Wake County Public Schools and then didn't go too far away to Meredith College. While at Meredith I had placements with children varying in age from 6 weeks to 5th grade. At Meredith I was involved in the club Meredith Advocates for Young Children (MAYC) where I was an officer for 3 years. I also studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark during the summer after my junior year and got to work with children at a school there. I completed my student teaching in Kindergarten at a school in north Raleigh. I then began teaching at Oak Grove in 1st grade, taught 3rd grade for 2 years, and am now back in Kindergarten. I've had lots of different experiences and have loved certain parts of each of the grades, but I'm really excited about being in K!
