Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Joanne Johnson and I teach Second Grade 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 also have endorsements in Early Childhood, Reading, Language Arts, and Special Education.
I began my teaching carreer in 1995 in two prior districts before coming to the Ankeny School district in 2005. Over the years I have taught both Kindergarten and First grade. I have also taught night classes and supervised student teachers for Upper Iowa University.
My husband and I have three kids! Our youngest daughter is a Senior at Ankeny Centennial, our next daughter is a Junior at University of Iowa, and our son is graduated from University of Northern Iowa and living his grown up life now!
I look forward to a great year with your second graders! I love my job and feel very fortunate to be in such an awesome district!
Have a GREAT day!!
