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!
