This year Kennedy has lots of new students, teachers, and administrators.
Elisabeth Johnson in T-2 is one of those teachers, a social studies teacher to be exact. She came to Kennedy this year from Luther Burbank where she taught for 15 years.
Ms. Johnson prides herself in her family and being a published author. She says, “I want the people at Kennedy to know that I’m excited to join the K-house and I hope to really make this place my home.”
“I don’t consider myself a history buff, but I do love teaching and helping people,” says Ms. Johnson about teaching social studies.
Her book, titled The Social Studies Teacher’s Toolbox, is about teaching. According to the description of the book, it “is an innovative, research-based resource providing teachers with instructional strategies for students of all levels and abilities.”
Sophomore Christen Baranoff said Ms. Johnson “is one of the nicest and most understanding teachers here.”
