Tanya Johnson


My name is Tanya Johnson.  This is my first year at CS Porter and I'm super excited to be teaching 8th grade history and ELA.  Prior to CS Porter, I taught 5th grade at Lowell Elementary.  I have also taught middle school geography in Helena, Gallatin Gateway and in Missoula at Washington Middle School.  I started college at Montana Tech getting a business degree.  However, business wasn't my thing, so I continued my education so I could teach. 

I grew up in Helena and I love everything about Montana (well, except for the winters).  I have an awesome husband and the sweetest dog in the world named Smyth.  

While this year is unlike any other, I'm super excited to be back in the classroom with kids.  Please feel free to contact me at for any reason.
