Welcome to STEM!

Hello Willow Wildcats! My name is Lauren Johnson, and I am your new STEM teacher. This is my tenth year as a teacher, and I am so excited to join the Willow family! I started my teaching career in Champaign as a third grade teacher before transitioning to K-5th STEM teaching. I moved this summer to be closer to my family and I am loving being back in the Chicago area. 
 
Some things about me...
 
I have a pet bearded dragon named Jabberwocky.
 
I love crafts, especially knitting and crocheting.
 
I am working on my Master's in STEM Education and will be done this December.
 
I like to bake. Cookies and brownies are my specialty!
 
I cannot WAIT to learn with you this year! Please email me any questions you have and any pictures of cool insects you find outside.
