Mr. Johnson Joining Us MONDAY!

I remember how much I appreciated learning from other teachers and practicing what I learned from my classes when I was a student teacher. After meeting with Ryan Johnson and having a great conversation, I am confident that his experience coming in to teach will not only benefit him and his future, but also the students and me as we are all life-long learners wanting to improve at what we do. The following is a message from Ryan, introducing himself:

Dear Parents and Families,
My name is Ryan Johnson and I am a senior elementary education major at Concordia University. I will be student teaching in Mr. Riedl's class for the rest of the school year and my first day will be on February 1st. I am very excited about the opportunity to be working and learning from Mr. Riedl, and also working with the students in this class. I am a Christian and have attended a Presbyterian church back home in Medford, Oregon my entire life. I look forward to meeting all of you and building relationships with the students in this class over the next few months.
Thank You,
Ryan Johnson
