Alexandra Johnson

 

Hello!

My name is Alexandra Johnson and I am thrilled to be joining the grade 2 team at Cooper’s Crossing School. I graduated from the University of Western Ontario in London with my BA in Leadership and Communications and received my Bachelor of Education from the University of Calgary. I now live in Calgary with my husband and puppy. We love spending time exploring the parks in our city and taking trips to the mountains!

I am a firm believer that the best learning happens in spaces where all students feel accepted and safe. Together, we will work to create a respectful classroom where everyone can enjoy learning. This year in grade two, students will engage in a variety of experiences in the classroom and will have the opportunity to express themselves in many different ways on a daily basis, including: reading and Daily 5, writing, science, social studies, math activities, centre time, drama, music, art, play, and physical education.  Students’ daily learning activities, which are very hands-on and include inquiry-based learning and the integration of technology, will help students to develop the 21stCentury competencies that they will need to be successful in the future and in today’s global community. This year our students will grow as active collaborators in their learning by participating in opportunities each day where they imagine, explore, and create alongside their classmates.

I am looking forward to starting our year together and meeting your families!
