My name is Jada Johnson and I teach science here at McDowell High School. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 8th year in education. I began my career teaching 7th grade science at East McDowell Jr. High, and from there moved to West McDowell Jr. High, teaching 9th grade. I enjoyed working with the freshman so much that in 2014 I followed them up with the Freshman Academy and have been teaching at the high school ever since.
I am originally from, and still reside in, Burke County. I graduated from UNC Asheville with a degree in Cell & Molecular Biology and a concentration in teaching Biology. I also have my licensure to teach 6th-12th grade comprehensive science. I have one daughter in the 10th grade here at MHS.
I look forward to a wonderful year and will do everything I can to help students be successful. I have high expectations for my students and will do anything I can to help them achieve their goals and experience success in my classroom. I expect students will, in return, be active participants in class and in their own learning by being willing to do the work needed to master the skills and content. If a student feels that he/she is struggling, they are encouraged to schedule a time to come and work with me before or after school.
