    About Mrs. Johnstone

    This is my 23rd year teaching!  Time flies when you're having a blast!   

    I  grew up in Maine and attended the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Go Tar Heels! After graduating, I moved to Washington DC to teach Middle School Spanish for three years. Next, I moved to New York City where I taught 5th grade.  My husband and I moved to Helena in 2004 and I taught a 4th/5th grade combination class.  Twelve years ago, we moved with our three beautiful kids and two energetic dogs to Missoula.  I taught at Garden City Montessori for two years then I moved over to Paxson to teach first, fourth, and now second grades! 

    I am so honored to be here. Paxson is my neighborhood school.  I know it's a great learning community because my own children went here!
