Dear Westwood Parents/Guardians:
I very much look forward to teaching your student Reading/Writing this year. The class is so much fun, despite the challenges of moving up! Please see the syllabus on the Westwood website for more information about the course content. I would love to hear from you, particularly if you have questions or want to give me information about your student. I am happy to help with anything you need.
My background includes being raised in High Falls, New York with 6 brothers and sisters. Our youngest was born with Intellectual Disabilities. Inspired by my little sister, I set out to become a Special Education Teacher. I graduated from Ulster County Community College and Arizona State University. I have been privileged to teach teens for more than 30 years in California and Arizona.
My student expectations are to be respectful always and keep an open mind. I will work as hard as I can, and encourage by example to practice resilience, focus on problem solving, and to learn from each other in a community of acceptance.
Susan E. Johnston
