Welcome to J.G. Johnson, the home of the Mustangs! I am truly honored and so excited to be a part of the Mustang family! The beginning of a new school year is one of my favorite times of the year, and this year is no exception. Please allow me to introduce myself, and all of the great things that will be achieved at Johnson this year.

I grew up in Wyoming, and graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I then spent 12 years as a social studies and theatre instructor, as well as a cross country and track coach, mostly in Colorado. I received a Masters in educational technology and a principal license, and spent the last five years as an administrator, mostly in Wyoming. I have always loved the desert Southwest, so when the opportunity to be in Pahrump and at J. G. Johnson arrived, I jumped at the chance!

My wife and I are both in education, and we have three amazing kids: one in college, one a freshman in high school, and a 3rd grader. We love the outdoors, enjoy the arts, and travel a lot. What a great place to experience all three!

At Johnson, our focus will center around building strong relationships, creating a positive climate, and achieving academic success. When kids know their teachers care about them, when they feel physically and emotionally safe, and when they have the opportunity to show and celebrate success, extraordinary things can and will happen! To truly ensure success for every student, teachers and staff, parents, guardians, and students must work together to create a solid team, which will be the hallmark of J. G. Johnson Elementary!

Every Student A Success!
