Welcome to First Grade
Welcome to First Grade! For those of you who do not know me my name is Haley Johnson. This will be my Third year teaching at Hopkins Elementary, but I have been a Briar Jumper my entire life! I attended Hopkins from Kindergarten until Fourth Grade, and this school holds a special place in my heart! I am so excited to return the knowledge, love, and compassion to new Baby Briar Jumpers! I graduated from University of the Cumberland’s in December 2017 where I received by Bachelors degree in Elementary Education as well as a certification in Special Education. I am eager to watch how your student will learn and grow over the course of the year!
I am a firm believer in keeping a strong, open line of communication between home and school. After all, we have something very special in common: your child! I will strive to keep you up to date and informed about all classroom and school happenings. However, if you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at any time.

Student’s behaviors will be recorded using the Classroom DOJO app. Students will earn and/or lose points based on behaviors exhibited throughout each school day. Students will be given the opportunity to spend their DOJO points at the DOJO classroom store every three weeks. The store will contain class coupons on various items, treats, and candy! Classroom behavior will also be monitored with the Behavior Clip-Chart. Each student will begin the day on the green section, and be moved up or down according to behaviors recorded by the teacher.
