Key Roles

Hello! My name is Melissa Johnson and I will be teaching Grade 8 for the school year. 

Originally I am from Bergen, Alberta where I grew up on a farm with my three sisters and parents. (5 women in my household! My dad was so lucky!) I loved living on the farm as I truly enjoy the outdoors and would sneak off to the river to fish any chance I could.

After graduating, I attended the University of Lethbridge where I received my Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Education majoring in Mathematics. Once I received my dual degree I began my teaching career at Olds High School teaching 9-12 Math and Science. I then taught at Ecole Innisfail Middle School for two years where I took on teaching grade 8 math and science. Wanting to be closer to home I transferred back to Olds and joined the Deer Meadow team! As you already may have figured out, I am teaching Grade 8, which is close to my heart! 

I am very passionate about being a teacher and I believe I have chosen one of the most fulfilling careers out there! I am excited to meet your child and cannot wait to see where this school year takes us! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you have throughout the year.
