Welcome to AR Johnson Health-Sciences and Engineering Magnet School! I am Ms. Legoas (pronounced Lego-us), and I am teaching 6th grade Earth Science and Study Skills this year. I will be teaching both the online students and the face-to-face students. I have been teaching for twenty-two years and have a Master's Degree in Education. I have taught Pre-K, 1st-3rd grade, adult education, and middle school science, social studies, STEM Research, and computer technology. In addition, I am the Georgia Science Teacher Association Middle School Director. I am very excited to be at AR Johnson teaching science in this beautiful school, and I know this will be a great year!
I have a 23 year old son who graduated from Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School and from Georgia Southern University. He is currently a reporter for the Augusta Chronicle. In addition, I have a twin sister, Ms. Istre (East), who teaches 8th grade science here at ARJ. In my free time I enjoy music, art, auctions, shopping, and movies.
I truly believe that in order to give your child the best education possible, it takes a team approach. The student, parents, and teacher must work together and communicate in order to provide the students with the best middle school experience possible. So, if there is ever a question or concern, please email me at legoado@BOE.Richmondk12.ga.us
and I will respond as soon as possible. Please be aware though that some days I may not check my email until the end of the day because my first priority is providing your child with the best education possible. However, I assure you I will respond within 24 hours.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation, and I look forward to a great year as AR Johnson Panthers!
