Ms. Elaine Ward


Welcome to the 22-23 school year at A.R. Johnson Health Science and Engineering Magnet School!  My name is Elaine Ward and I will be teaching Middle School S.T.E.M. this year.  I have been teaching for 21 years now and am a very proud mother of a 19 year-old son, Thomas, who is currently pursuing a career in Engineering. During the last 21 years, I have taught math and science in grades 6-8 as well as 4th grade math and adult education.  I received my STEM/STEAM endorsement 2 years ago and am so very excited about using that knowledge to teach S.T.E.M. this year. This will be my first year at A.R. Johnson, and I am thrilled to have this fantastic opportunity of teaching some of my favorite concepts and contents at this beautiful school. I believe that teachers need to work closely with parents and students to provide a positive atmosphere of communication and consistency. I will work diligently to educate your child so that this year here at A.R. Johnson will be a time of growth and success. I am confident that we are going to have a productive and successful school year. I thank you in advance for your support, and I look forward to a terrific year here at A.R. Johnson!
