Ms. Suzie Johnson

My name is Suzie Johnson and this is my seventh year teaching at North Windy Ridge Intermediate. I'm thrilled to be a part of the strong, supportive and nurturing NWR family.

The majority of my childhood was spent in Augusta, Georgia; however I was born in Boston, Massachusetts. I did my student teaching at Isaac Dickson Elementary many years ago and then moved to Winston Salem where I taught for 18 years. During that time, I earned my Masters of Education in Reading. Most of my experience has been teaching 3rd- 5th graders. In 2011, I returned to teach in the Asheville area. I have always been drawn to these beautiful mountains and especially love the Weaverville area. In 2015, I earned my National Board Certification in Literacy which greatly impacts how I teach math and science. My favorite part of my teaching is watching students' faces light up when they discover their successes. In addition, I love seeing students develop or discover their love of math and science especially when we integrate with technology. 

I have the best ever nieces and nephews and a very spoiled English Setter named Abby. In my free time, I enjoy walking Abby, spending time on my porch reading a good book, skiing down snow covered slopes or travelling to new or familiar places.
