Jessica Johnson, Writing Ranger (1st Grade)
Hi campers! I'll be your Writing Ranger this summer and I can't wait to get started! I graduated from Cal Poly SLO with my Bachelors in Liberal Studies. I went on to get my teaching credential and Masters at San Jose State University. I will be getting my PhD from UCLA this coming Fall in Special Education with a focus in Autism. I have been able to observe and teach in various grade level classrooms. From a young age I have always had a passion for writing. I think writing can take you far and it's important to teach campers that their writing skills are of strong value. I can't wait to show campers the fun and creative ways they can write this summer! 🙂
