Lisa is a very positive teacher and colleague. Lisa goes the extra mile to make eighth grade a special year for the eighth grade students. She does an excellent job with organizing with her colleagues and parents every year to make MORP a fabulous night that the students enjoy getting dressed up in formal wear. She just organized a great ELA night with our ELA staff in 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades to allow students, parents, and staff to participate in a community service project for our local nursing home. Thanks for all you do Lisa!

Mrs. Johns is a wonderful teacher and leader. The passion she has for students is astonishing.She has changed so many life’s in her years of not only teaching, but coaching cheerleading. Often times the best teachers never receive any recognition. Mrs. Johns is one of those teachers. I can’t think of a better recipient.

Mrs. Johns is an incredibly carinv teacher. I have known her since she worked as a paraprofessional in the media center when I was a high school teacher. Mrs. Johns worked hard to receive her teaching certificate and has spent every day of her career doing her best to help her students to become successful. She believes all students can achieve greatness, and she helps the students see it, too! She is very deserving of this award!

I had Mrs.Johns when I was in ith grade I'm a junior in highschool now. I have no idea if I would have gotten this far without her class and creative way of teaching.

Out of all the teachers I've had in middle school Mrs. Lisa Johns was my favorite. I meet Mrs. Johns before she became my 8th grade back then. She'll check on me from time to time to see how I'm doing.

Lisa's students love and depend on her for encouragement. She is a kind hearted person who goes the extra mile to show kindness to the "least of these". I know from personal experience that she finds the time to speak to people that others may try to avoid. Also, she helped rescue and return some old family photos to me that were found quite randomly, and these would otherwise have been lost or discarded. She is thoughtful and goes the extra mile. Congratulations on your nomination Lisa!
