Hi! My name is Kayla Johnson. I am the English Language Learner teacher at Founders and EMS! I have been working in the district for 8 years and I love every minute of it. It is a joy to see students come into school and watch them grow as readers, writers, listeners, and speakers. I love living in this wonderfully diverse community with my husband and daughter. In my free time I love to garden, hike, canoe, and cook!
