Hi!! My name is Miss. Johnson, and I teach 5th grade! This is my fifth year of teaching. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2018 (Go Cyclones!!) with an Elementary Education degree. I have endorsements in Reading, ELA, and Mathematics. In my free time, I like to read, travel, hangout with my family, and cheer on the KC Chiefs! I LOVE animals! I am a fur-mom to three kitties, and one dog named Charli. I am looking forward to another awesome year at Willard!
Hello and welcome to 5th grade! My name is Mrs. Rathe and I am excited to begin my third year in 5th grade at Willard. Willard is such a special school and 5th grade has a sweet spot in my heart. I graduated from the University of Iowa in May 2020 where I received my BA in Elementary Education with endorsements in Reading and English as a Second Language. I grew up in Ames, so I like to tell people that it is possible to cheer for both the Cyclones and the Hawkeyes! When I am not teaching, I enjoy running, cooking, reading, and spending time with my husband. 5th grade is going to be awesome this year!
