Ms. Elaine Ward
Welcome to the 23-24 school year at A.R. Johnson Health Science and Engineering Magnet School! My name is Elaine Ward and I will be the STEAM facilitator, REP coordinator and the WBL coordinator this year. I have been teaching for 22 years now and am a very proud mother of a 20 year-old son, Thomas, who is currently pursuing a career in Engineering. During the last 22 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 3 years ago and am so very excited about using that knowledge to help others facilitate S.T.E.A.M. in their classes this year. This will be my second 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 students 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!
