Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Joanne Johnson and I teach Kindergarten at Ashland Ridge Elementary! I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Graceland University in 1995 and my Master's Degree in Education from Viterbo University in 2000.
I began teaching in 1995 and taught both Kindergarten and First grade in two prior districts. After five years, I decided to take a few years off to be home with my children, while also teaching night classes and supervising student teachers for Upper Iowa University. Then in 2005, I began teaching Kindergarten in Ankeny!
My husband and I have three kids! Our youngest daughter is a Junior at Ankeny Centennial, our next daughter is a Freshman at University of Iowa, and our son is a Senior at University of Northern Iowa!
I look forward to a great year with your kindergartners! I love my job and feel very fortunate to be in such an awesome district!
Have a GREAT day!!
