Mrs. Shayla Johnson

Hello!  My name is Shayla Johnson and I have the priviledge to teach 2nd grade this year at Hickory Ridge Elementary.  I began my teaching career as a K/1 and 2nd grade teacher in a neighboring county.  I took some time off from teaching to stay home with my two boys.  I returned to teaching in Cabarrus County as an interventionist when my youngest went to first grade.  I am joining the Hickory Ridge family from Rocky River Elementary where I was and MTSS Coach/Instructional Coach for the last four years.  

I have been married for 21 years to my husband, Chuck.  We have two boys.  Austin is a freshman and Appalachian State University where I attended school. (Go Neers!)  Alex is a junior at Hickory Ridge High School.  We have two dogs named Piper and Barney who are more human than dog.  In my spare time I love to spend time with family and friends.  I am happy when I am outside in nature either hiking, kayaking, skiing, camping or walking my puppies.  I love to travel and see new places and am always up for a new adventure or learning experience.  I have a passion for teaching and am thirlled to be back in the classroom theaching your child this year!
