Mrs. Waynette Johnson

I have been married for 22 years to my husband Jimmy and we have three amazing children, Katie, Nathan and Wyatt. Katie is in her second year of college, Nathan is a high school senior, and Wyatt is in the eighth grade. After staying home with my children for 15 years, I decided to pursue my dream of teaching. I graduated from Pfeiffer University in 2019 with a B.A. in Elementary Education. I am living proof your never too old learn! This is my second year teaching 2nd grade at Green Ridge Elementary School and I cannot imagine teaching anywhere else.

My teaching philosophy: I teach the whole child, not just academics, but life skills to be the best person that child can be. I believe every child has a gift of learning. It just takes patience, perseverance, and time to unlock the inner gift. Once the gift is out, the child's confidence is ignited and the love of learning never stops!
