Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education Emphasis in Early Childhood

Miss Johanna Long

I am an outgoing educator dedicated to providing a safe, culturally rich learning environment that promotes student interdependence and celebrates individuality while maintaining a strong relationship with my students, parents, peers, and community. I believe in using data to drive my instruction and differentiating that instruction to push students at all proficiency levels to learn at their highest potential.  I am a lifelong learner who knows the importance of education in a well balanced life; I will continually challenge myself to share my knowledge and passion for learning with students and to always do what is in the best interest of their education.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood from Northern Arizona University in 2010. Through my bachelor's degree program, I gained a lot of insight in to how children grasp knowledge that will last a lifetime. I was a part of the Cohort program which allows students to realistically apply the information they learn in their college classes in to real elementary classrooms. Through the Cohort program, I have had the opportunity to teach in Head Start Pre-School, Kindergarten, and 1st grade classrooms. In 2011, I was hired into the Deer Valley Unified School District.  I taught a wonderful first year of 2nd grade here at Constitution Elementary School during the 2011-2012 school year, and was delighted with my experience here.

I believe in the importance of being an active member in my school and in my community.  I am continuously taking on new projects because I enjoy being fully involved in the community and school that I am a part of.  I am excited to be a part of and look forward to being an active participant in the community of Constitution once again.

I have lived in Arizona my whole life. I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, Alex, our cat, Roxy, our two tortoises, Rockie and Ozzie. My favorite hobbies include spending time with friends and family, traveling, hiking, yoga, and snowboarding. My favorite color is green and I love shoes and watches.
