Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome and hello! My name is Shelby Johnson, and I am the 6th grade science and social studies teacher at Sunset Ridge. I am so thrilled to begin this school year!
I was born and raised in Texas, and I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Abilene Christian University in 2014. Before moving to Phoenix and beginning to teach at Sunset Ridge last year, I taught at the elementary level in Austin for three years. Out of the grade levels I have taught, 6th grade is my absolute favorite!
Some of my hobbies include reading, camping, hiking, snow skiing, and cooking dinner with my husband.
My classroom is defined by respect and high expectations. From day one in my class, students learn that they are expected to treat themselves and others with respect, and we review what that means on a regular basis. Not only does this influence the environment of my classroom, but it is my sincerest hope that this impacts the kind of people my students become when they leave my room. In addition, students are held to a high academic standard. The coursework is rigorous in both science and social studies, and students are expected to complete all assignments to the best of their ability and turn them in on time. As students begin middle school, it is crucial that they take responsibility for their own actions and schoolwork.
Together, I know that we are going to have a fabulous, successful school year. Please feel free to contact me any time!
