Johnson, Jan
About Me:  This is my 30 plus year of teaching and my 20th at Hornedo.  I have taught kindergarten through 8th grade and have loved my switch to Social Studies eight years ago.  I am an El Paso native having graduated from Burges High School and then attending U.T. Austin and the University of Colorado at Boulder where I received a B.S. in Journalism.  I have taught in both the YISD and Austin school districts.
Class overview:  This year I am teaching 6th grade World Cultures along with 7th grade Texas History.  In addition, both grade levels will dive into current events and the presidential election in November.
 All students are required to bring their interactive notebook to class daily.  90 percent of the work done in my classes will be kept in the notebook.  Little homework is given as most everything can easily be finished in a class period.

Should you need to schedule a conference, my personal prep is 2nd period (9:10-9:55).  I look forward to seeing you on Parent Night.

In addition to the notebooks, students are required to have colored pencils, scissors, and glue sticks.  It is the responsibility of the student to have these materials each day in class.  I will not be providing these materials.  Most all disciplines will be using the interactive notebooks this year.  Students will not be allowed to return to their locker for forgotten items.
While lessons are posted on the web page, they are subject to change.  What is posted daily on the board will reflect any change in schedule.
