My name is Jessica Johnson. This is my third year teaching at FLVT and my 10th year of teaching! I graduated from the University of New Brunswick in 2007 with concurrent degrees in Arts and Education (Middle/Young Adult Years/ESL). I have taught in a range of schools such as inner-city schools in Southern Ontario, Renison University College and a Hutterite School in Southern Alberta! I have also taught grades 1-9 in my teaching career thus far as well as all subject areas. My favorite subject of all is French!
I was born in Carbonear, Newfoundland and moved to Fredericton, New Brunswick to complete my post-secondary studies. After this, I moved to Waterloo, Ontario to teach French. Seven years ago, I had the opportunity to move further west to the windy city! I have had many unique experiences since arriving here. I was able to work in several of the schools in our wonderful division as well as work on a Hutterite Colony where I got to share in their beautiful culture and learn some Tyrolean German. I live in Lethbridge with my husband, Vishaal and our four-year-old son, Jack. My favourite things to do besides working with young people, are: travelling, spending time with family and being active in the gym or in the outdoors!
This year I will be teaching Grades 7-9 Math, Grade 7 Social, Grade 8 Health & Wellness, Grades 7-9 French and Yoga. Please sign up for Remind on the Course pages above to receive course information/reminders.
At school this year, I will be helping out with the drama production, the Me to We Club and the Quebec Trip among many other activities! I encourage you to join in the fun at Van Tighem! You will have a blast!
