My name is Derek Johnson (Mr. Johnson). This is my 22nd year of teaching, and most of those were spent in 4th(3yrs), 5th(9yrs), and 6th(10yrs) grades. I am originally from Upper Michigan and graduated from Northern Michigan University. I am married to my fabulous wife Janine, who is an RN at Maple Grove Hospital. I am also a father of two wonderful children Alena (13) and Nick (9). I can’t forget our sweet Havanese/Bichon mix pup Luna. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching/playing sports, fishing, and watching movies. I am honored to be a part of your child’s life this year.
I look forward to getting to know and build relationships with you and your child. I believe the partnership between school and home is crucial for your child to get the best educational experience possible. I am most easily reached by e-mail at email@example.com Please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the school year.
I anticipate a great year full of fun, and lifelong learning in room 296! My door is always open. I am here for you!
