My name is Amelia Johnson. I am a graduate of Florida Gulf Coast University. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. I am also ESOL and Reading Endorsed. This is my 11th year in Education and 10th year at Lehigh Elementary. I believe ALL students can learn and I look forward to another wonderful year at L.E.S!
A little more about me...
I live in Cape Coral with my husband Chad and our daughter Lily. We also have three fur babies. When I am not teaching I enjoy going to the beach, and spending time with my family. I love to watch competition cooking shows, even though I'm not a great cook! My favorite hobbies incude:decorating, painting, crafting, and shopping.
Homework will only be given Monday-Thursday. Reading each night is a requirement. They will be asked to read 20-25 minutes each night. Inside the S.O.S. binder you will find questions to reinforce comprehension before, during and after reading. Math homework will only be given if I deem it necessary and will follow the lesson taught in class that day.
Each child will have a planner provided by the school, additionally I will send home an S.O.S. binder.The purpose of the binder is to encourage your child to plan ahead and stay organized! This is an important skill to have and my goal is to make them as independent as possible this school year.
There are also many free websites that can assist your child at home.
