Welcome to English Language Arts!
Teacher: R. Johnson
Welcome! I am Raven Johnson. I hope this page serves as a bridge between you and I on the happenings in English class with Ms. Johnson. The 2017-2018 school year marks my third year in the teaching profession and my third year at the historic A.H. Parker High School! Go Thundering Herd!
I am a grauduate of Auburn University (War Eagle!) and will finish my second degree in 2018 at The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) with my Master's degree in Secondary Education. I am a lifelong resident of Birmingham and I am proud to be a part of the Parker team!
My teaching philosophy is rooted in ensuring students can actively and effectively communicate their ideas and philosophies. This can be seen in many different ways. A day in my classroom may involve skits, role play scenarios, Socratic seminars, manipulatives, reading/writing, or a combination of all. As an English teacher, it is important to be sure students can read texts and understand them, however I believe my impact has been made if a student leaves my classroom able to read the world in order to better understand it.
