As a Scotland native, there is not a teacher in the state of Illinois that enjoys his job more than Mr. Johnson! I am proud to be in my 7th year as the Primary STEM teacher, JV soccer coach, Robotics Coach, indoor soccer club sponsor, science fair coordinator, as well as many other odd jobs. Each day in science we ask HUGE scientific questions about phenomena around us and try to answer them by designing experiments and engineering solutions. I firmly believe STEM education and inquiry-based, real world problem-based learning are the key to our student's future. If you ever have any questions about what we do here in the STEM lab, have suggestions, or simply want to do some fun home science activities, please feel free to reach out.
When I am not at school you can find me sailing my hydrofoiling moth sailboat, kite boarding, walking my dog Wallace, running marathons, directing a summer camp in Maine, or spending time with my beautiful wife Sarah and our magnificent son, Jasper.
I look forward to yet another wonderful year as part of the incredible faculty at Fairview South School.
