Welcome to Mrs. Johnson's Homepage

"There's no such thing as a kid who hates reading. There are kids who love reading, and kids who are reading the wrong books." -James Patterson

Asking me if I like reading is like asking me if I like breathing!

My name is Katie Johnson and I have been so lucky to teach at GGS for the last 14 years.  I have taught first and second grade, and I am now currently the reading specialist.  My favorite part of my job is to teach students the love and joy for reading with my partner in crime Mrs. Wilson and getting to work with the best students and coworkers EVER!!!!   I graduated from Elmhurst College in 2003 and received my reading specialist masters degree from Olivet Nazarene College in 2010.  My husband and I have one super cool 14 year old son!!!!  I am a total Baseball MOM :)  In my free time I enjoy reading, gardening, cooking/grilling, and watching the Cubs.
