Hello students and parents!
My name is is Kelli Johns, and I am excited to be your 2nd grade teacher this year! This is my eighth year of teaching. I previously taught 1st grade for three years. This is my fifth year teaching 2nd grade! In April, 2016, I earned the Leading Edge Digital Educator Certification! I love incorporating technology in the classroom.
I was born in Texas and moved to California as a child. I played Varsity tennis in high school. I earned my Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction as well as my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from California State University, Bakersfield. I have been married for seven wonderful years. This year, our family grew a little bigger- we have a son, whom we love so much! I also have a cat and a dog. Three years ago, I completed my 1st half-marathon in Santa Cruz with other Carlton staff members. I've run a few more half-marathons since then. My favorite was running the Nike Women's half-marathon in San Fransisco since I'm a huge Nike fan!
In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, being active, and making desserts!
