Welcome to Mrs. Johnson's Kindergarten!

My name is Kristine Johnson and I am teaching my 9th year here in Grand Meadow.

I earned my Early Childhood and Elementary Education degree from Winona State University in December of 2010, and began teaching in Grand Meadow in the August of 2011. I taught Preschool for two years and then began in Kindergarten. In 2015, I earned by Master's Degree in Early Childhood Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University. I love working with Kindergarten students. Their excitement for learning through play, exploration, songs, games and books is contagious! 

The 2020-2021 year will be unlike any other, but very fun and exciting.  We will have 20 students.  We are also very lucky to have a full-time paraprofessional to assist us, Mrs. Deb Gehling.
