My name is Mary Johnson. I have been a teacher for the past 17 years. I am originally from Illnois. I taught Kindergarten and Second Grade there. This is my 6 year in First grade at Taylor County Elementary. I am happily married to my husband of 17 years. I have 3 beautiful daughters that also attend Taylor County Schools. Carly is in Eigth grade, Natalie is in Sixth grade, and my youngest Allison is in Fourth Grade. I talk about my kids with my school kids all the time as we share stories about our lives. I think this helps them see that I'm not always at school. I love teaching and can't tell you how much I love working with my class this year. These kids will always be part of my family.
