My name is Kristina Johnson and this will be my 18th year of teaching.  I started my career teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade in Las Vegas (Yes! They have kids there!) before returning to Minnesota.  This will be my 11th year in the Anoka-Hennepin School District, having worked as an Elementary Instructional Coach, 1st grade teacher, Supplemental Programs teacher, Reading Recovery and now as a Literacy Specialist! I am excited to begin my new role as an LS, especially since I will be working with students and also working closely with teachers as they provide reading instruction to students K-5.
    Having grown up in Coon Rapids (I attended Morris Bye, CRMS, and CRHS myself), I am excited that my family has planted roots in this community! I have two kids who keep their Mama busy- Daniel and Tessa.  
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child on their educational journey!  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist you as you support your child at home!
