Mr. Andre Johnson
Greetings Smith-Barnes Elementary:
I am delighted to join a fantastic team of educators. Smith-Barnes is an excellent place for young people to thrive and grow. We are committed to taking each student one step further on the journey of academic excellence!
I am Mr. André Johnson, a native of Memphis, TN. However, Atlanta has been my home for over a decade. My educational career started in Memphis, TN. The University of Memphis is where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Science in Education with a concentration in Reading. The University of West Georgia is helped developed my leadership by providing a Tier 1 Leadership certification. I am continuing my education with a lens on educational leadership in an Educational Specialist program.
My teaching assignments have included every subject and grade from 1st grade to 7th grade. Every year and in every classroom, I was afforded a fresh start to give to my students. Self-reflection is critical to be an effective educator. As an academic coach and curriculum support, I challenged teachers to reflect on the practices they utilized to move student achievement. My mission is always to do what is best for children. I believe that all students can and will learn, and it is our job to support all their needs.
I hope that we learn and grow together in the service of our students and community. My door is open to your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions to continue the success of our Smith-Barnes’ tigers!
Mr. André Johnson
