Mrs. Sandy Johnson, Grade 1

Johnson_SandraHi!  I’m Sandy Johnson, and I love teaching in this awesome school of St. Mary of Mount Carmel.  Not because it’s my hometown, but I love JESUS and KIDS!  I started this teaching journey graduating from Long Prairie High School, then on to Brainerd Community College in the Early Childhood Program, and finished at St. Cloud State University with a BS degree in education.  I have been teaching since 1983.  I have been with St. Mary School since 1985 and have had the opportunity to enjoy working with many amazing people.  I have worked with some of the most professional and caring co-workers in the world, many who have helped me become the teacher that I am today.  I have been teaching First Graders at St. Mary School since 1996. Prior to then, my years of teaching included 1st and 2nd grade combination, 5th grade, and Kindergarten.  ALL of these kids, parents, and educators have shared and taught me many important lessons and really make me smile.  I love and thank each one of them!

In the time that I don’t spend at school, my life is filled with two wonderful guys, my husband Mark and son Chance.  We live in Clarissa with our black lab, and she keeps us very active with walks, retrieving her ball, swimming, relaxing, and especially hunting.  As a family, we like to be with friends, go to movies, read, fish, and just spend time together.

I have truly been blessed by God!
